In May 1991, the MCA selected Josef Paul Kleihues to design our new home. It was Kleihues’s first commission in the United States, and a fitting one for someone who admired the architectural traditions of Chicago, especially architects William Le Baron Jenney, David Adler, Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, John Root, and the firm of Holabird & Roche.
