During the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the University of Chicago’s Campus Edges shuttle tour will visit various sites of architectural activity and speculation on and around the University's Hyde Park campus, including the construction site for a new campus residence hall designed by Studio Gang Architects; the University’s Arts Incubator, envisioned by artist and UChicago faculty member Theaster Gates; the proposed sites for the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park and Washington Park; and the campus' landmark Mid-century buildings by Eero Saarinen and Mies van der Rohe. Other tour highlights include the Logan Center for the Arts designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects, Museum Campus South, the Rebuild Foundation’s Stony Island Arts Bank, among others. Visitors can use the shuttle as a hop-on, hop-off means to stop at various destinations, or experience the tour as a continuous trip, led by UChicago-affiliated tour guides.
