Location: Chicago, Illinois
Program: Elevated transit station, Infrastructure
The new Green Line station at Cermak serves the Chinatown and Motor Row area of Chicago and is the first station at that location since 1977. The station fills in a major gap in CTA service that once existed at McCormick Place since the previous station was removed from service and demolished. The unique design features a highly durable and visually striking stainless steel skin that shelters the platform.
Tumu founder, Huili Feng, played a major role in this project while at Ross Barny Architects. She was particularly instrumental in the design, development, and realization of the stations’ iconic stainless steel facade.
