The University of Chicago will soon have yet another piece of starchitecture to add to its growing collection in the form of a $148 million dormitory development designed by Chicago's own Studio Gang. Unveiled just under a year ago, the Hyde Park university plans on breaking ground this Friday, according to DNAinfo. The dormitory and dining commons is expected to take about two years to complete, and once finished in summer 2016 the new facility will become the temporary home for 800 University of Chicago students.
