The CORE Center

Chicago, Illinois

The CORE Center is a joint venture between Rush-Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center and Cook County Hospital to provide a freestanding facility dedicated to the treatment and prevention of AIDS and other infectious diseases. It was the first facility of its kind in the world.

Project responsibilities included preparing presentation drawings for eventual publication and public display. The drawings were featured in a 1998 I-SPACE gallery exhibition highlighting the recent works of design principal Ralph Johnson, and were published in the July 1999 issue of Architectural Record.
