This exhibition, curated by Johnson Marklee, is a display of two dozen miniature rooms that represent a wide array of architecture and style. The inspiration for these miniatures – created by 24 different firms from around the world – ranges from ancient Egyptian tombs to Yves Saint Laurent’s Paris apartment to Chicago’s own Hancock Center. Visitors will get a global tour of architecture right here in the Chicago Cultural Center.
