Behind-the-Scenes: NEIU's El Centro Campus
Join us for an exclusive tour of the brand new Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) El Centro urban campus with architect Juan Moreno of JGMA. Since opening its doors in September 2014, this striking building near the Kennedy Expressway and Belmont blue line station has offered convenience to commuter students and a heightened visibility for the University, in addition to providing an anchor for outreach to the Latino community in Chicago and neighbors in Avondale.
Moreno will speak to the group about designing this new anchor for NEIU, then small group tours led by members of the JGMA design team and NEIU student and faculty members will guide you through the classrooms, computer labs, a multi-media resource center, conference rooms, community and study rooms, and double-height reception lobby.
Moreno will present his talk in Spanish at 6:00pm then in English at 6:30pm. Please reserve your ticket based on language preference.
COST: $15/$10 Members
LOCATION: El Centro, 3390 N. Avondale Avenue
