IIT Students Exhibit Work from SOM-Led Studio on High-Speed Rail

On May 11th, 2016, SOM hosted a reception in its Chicago office to highlight the work of Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) students who had participated in a studio about high-speed rail in the Midwest. The studio was led by a team of SOM staff in Chicago: Director of Urban Design and Planning Thomas Hussey, Senior Designer Mark Nagis, Urban Designer Robert Bracken, Senior Technical Designer Jorge Rovira, Senior Designer Jacob Gay, Senior Designer Justin Petersen, and Architectural Designer David Mulder. Projects by six student teams were displayed, each presenting unique visions for stations in a rail corridor between Chicago and Toronto.
