Text description provided by the architects. Wrightwood 659 is an exhibition space in Chicago, designed by Tadao Ando, who has transformed a 1920s building with his signature concrete forms and poetic treatment of natural light. Wrightwood 659 will be devoted to exhibitions of architecture and socially engaged art.

In a city rich with art institutions and internationally known for its architecture, Wrightwood 659 is a site for both intimate experiences of art and architecture, and thoughtful engagement with the pressing social issues of our time.

Located at 659 W. Wrightwood Avenue, in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, it is a private, non-commercial initiative envisioned as an integral part of the cultural and civic fabric of Chicago, as well as a new kind of arts space and cultural resource.
