The Art Institute of Chicago has announced plans to open a dedicated gallery for its rarely seen architecture and design collection.  Zoë Ryan, the museum’s Curator of Architecture and Design, is spearheading the initiative. The institution’s holdings include objects by Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Joris Laarman. Ryan is also working on a forthcoming book—As Seen: Exhibitions That Made Architecture and Design History. The tome’s release will coincide with the opening of the Art Institute’s new gallery.
