1985 – Michigan Plaza South, Chicago, Illinois

Architect: Fujikawa Johnson & Associates


The main entrance to Illinois Center’s shopping concourse is through this building set back from Michigan Avenue by a small plaza. Before the plaza’s renovation in 2000 the colorful sculpture “Splash” by Jerry Peart was its centerpiece. In 1975, the office of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was renamed Fujikawa Conterato Lohan & Associates to emphasize the team-based approach to design. In the 1980’s the company became Fujikawa Johnson & Associates under which name it still operates.
