Zinc Garden Grows at Ronan's Poetry Foundation

As we move inexorably closer to the June 25-26th Open House, the new building designed by architect John Ronan for the Poetry Foundation races towards completion.   The black zinc screen is largely in place along Superior . . .
although the elevation along Clark Street still awaits its facing.
Most recently, the trees for the entrance courtyard have been put in place, part of the landscape design by Reed Hilderbrand . . .
Right now they're more large, low-level shrubs, but as the building ages, we'll get to watch them rise to their full height.
A talk by Ronan about his building during the Open House is already wait-listed, but you can watch videos where he discusses his design here.
