The Spertus Institute, founded in 1924 and newly renovated in 2007, is a mixed-use program facility containing exhibition galleries, a library, a 400-seat multi-use auditorium, and a smattering of classrooms. Set in the Historic Michigan Boulevard District — a neighborhood whose architecture was designed by the likes of Burnham and Sullivan — the Spertus Institute resembles an exquisitely-cut diamond, rising like a majestic, man-made cliff across Grant Park. Krueck & Sexton designed its folded-glass façade as an ode to light, which is fundamental to Jewish religious and intellectual traditions. Spertus’ logo spells out “let there be light,” which represents the educational and spiritual enlightenment that is achieved through learning. Present-day materials and technologies are rigorously deployed in the upkeep of the Spertus Institute in order to support the building’s expression and to reveal the inner dynamic and energy of the many programs within. The bold sculptural details make the institution truly modern, yet it has a timeless quality that has helped to put Chicago on the architectural map.
