There’s a stunning new piece of architecture coming to the South Side of Chicago. The Richard J. Daley College campus in West Lawn will soon be home to the Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Center, a striking facility designed with unification in mind.

The building’s modern outline is a product of JGMA, a Chicago-based architecture and design firm that won an intense city-wide competition for the project. Spanning across 76th Street and linking the north and south campuses of Daley College, the structure “celebrates the manufacturing industry through the expression of materials such as metal panels, glass, and exposed steel,” according to a press release. As a finishing touch, the underbelly of the bridge will be painted caution yellow, a nod to the manufacturing industry.

It’s more than a handsome new addition to the campus—students and faculty will be able to enjoy outdoor terraces, new green spaces, seating areas and alcoves that allow for socializing and collaboration. Beyond that, the sleek architecture is designed to “create a more dignified place for students while empowering and motivating them to obtain a higher education.” Take a look at the renderings for the new Daley College Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Center below.
