Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

The Public Building Commission (PBC) announced two Architect of Record (AOR) appointments of emerging minority architectural firms to provide design services for the Chicago Public Library (CPL) Early Learning Educational Investment project. Chicago-based Onyx Architects and Studio ARQ will each serve as AOR for branch libraries throughout the City as part of the investment effort. The scope of the project will include interior renovations within the children’s library of up to 17 regional and branch libraries that incorporates science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with the five practices of early learning – Talk, Sing, Read, Write and Play.

One of the PBC’s 2016 Initiatives is to directly affect capacity building within professional services. To that end, the PBC identified the CPL Early Learning Educational Investments project as the prime opportunity to introduce small architectural firms to a new client and market sector: the Chicago Public Library.
