Michigan Avenue Plaza
The addition of a bold red canopy to the decades-old Boulevard Towers at 225 Michigan Avenue has provided the buildings with a new distinctive basing in the Chicago architectural landscape.While the buildings' original design was completed in the early 1980's by Fujikawa Johnson Associates (FJA Architects), this project was conceived as a renovation in the early 2000's designed by FGM Architects. Zahner was brought on to design and engineer the system, as well as providing the manufacture and installation of the prefabricated components of the distinctive red awning. Fabricated in aluminum panels with a red protective enamel coating, the understructure is made possible by a lightweight ZEPPS framework of preassembled panels.
