    Looking In Climbing Up

    I don't believe I ever posted this project.

    This was a competition entry for the ComEd Powerful Design Competition here in Chicago.  The brief was to design a new Lineworker training facility for ComEd, a power distribution company.  

    This was our Second Place entry.

    The concept of our design was to wrap the classrooms, administration and a public learning area around a dynamic indoor hands on training area.  As trainees climbed the indoor poles they would come up to the level of the class rooms and circulation of the building.
