Seven large-scale architectural models built with altered IKEA products. The models and their arrangement are based on seven buildings at the Michael Reese Hospital campus designed between 1945 - 1958 by Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus. Beginning in 2009, the City of Chicago has demolished each building represented in this project.
