Join us on a journey behind the scenes with Ross Barney Architects, winner of the 2021 National Design Award for Architecture and Interior Design. Founder Carol Ross Barney and her team will discuss their design process with 2021 National Design Award Juror Patricia Saldaña Natke, before taking us on a virtual tour of the McDonald’s Chicago Flagship. The one-of-a-kind building radically deviates from a typical prototype restaurant and begins to ask new questions about customer experience and impact. From its solar pergola to the indoor dining areas that seamlessly connect to permeable outdoor plazas and a park, the flagship is a case study on environmental stewardship, all while creating a city oasis where people can eat, drink, and meet.
