One of the largest privately held commercial buildings in the United States, Chicago’s iconic Merchandise Mart needed a full-scale reimagining of what it meant to building tenants and the city of Chicago at large. A+I’s design reinvigorates and reconnects historic parts of the building and dramatically changes the way the community — theMART’s tenants and visitors alike —experience the building.
