R.S. JOHNSON INTERNATIONAL GALLERIES

Blair Building, 645 N. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL.

Interior Architecture: design and construction supervision and inspection of a new art gallery in raw space the Blair Building on Michigan Avenue. 


 

A continuous metal plaster bead, similar to lines on sheet music, imbedded in the gypsum plaster walls allows for variations of picture hanging heights.


 

The gallery continues to function in its original state as designed in 1963.



 

A rolling steel framed plaster opens to reveal 10-100 S.F. wire mesh panels that store.

 

Occasionally the panels are used to display paintings without removing them.
