8 Architects Chosen for Kroc Community Center Competition

A five person jury has selected eight architects to participate in Stage II of a competition to design the Salvation Army's new $60 $70 million Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center at 47th and State Street in Chicago. Included in the list are Chicago firms Murphy/Jahn, Ross Barney + Jankowski, and Booth Hansen, as well as Antoine Predock, Rogers Marvel Architects, PPLC and Hood Design, Mack Scogin Merrill Elam, Behnisch Architects and Charles Rose Architects. The eight will submit their proposals to the jury on September 8th, which will then narrow the list to three or four firms for a final phase that will conclude with the selection of a design team in late October.
