Extreme Makeovers

The minimalist Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, a 1977 Stanley Tigerman design, is embarking on a beefy expansion: one that would see a two-story addition unfurl over parking lot with a new sculpture garden embedded within its galleries. The blog Chicago Grid is reporting on the proposed makeover by board member and architect George Sambor with consultation from Tigerman. The $1M project, still in need of funds, would also include classroom and workshop space and could make a major institution of a quaint one.
