On Monday, March 4th, Philip Enquist will participate in a panel discussion at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago. Enquist, SOM Consulting Partner in Urban Design and Planning, will present SOM's updated master plan for the city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The firm first designed the master plan for the city in 1949.
Enquist will be joined on the panel by moderator Martin Felsen, Director of the Master of Architecture Program and Associate Professor, IIT; and Martin Moeller, Senior Curator, National Building Museum. The panel will explore SOM's original master plan for Oak Ridge, as well as the Oak Ridge City Center 2030 Strategy Plan.
Panelists will also discuss "Secret Cities," an exhibition on view at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. through July 28th, 2019. The exhibition examines the design and construction of three cities that were built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as centers for the Manhattan Project: Oak Ridge; Hanford, Washington; and Los Alamos, New Mexico. Tracing their precedents in the Bauhaus and other early modern schools of architectural thought, the exhibition addresses each city from initial development through the present day.
