S.R. Crown Hall

Illinois Institute of Technology

3360 South State Street Chicago, IL


Kasten activated Mies van der Rohe’s iconic S.R. Crown Hall by co-opting IIT students’ Mies-designed worktables and combining them with acrylic elements, creating flexible and modular constructions dependent on geometry and balance. Simultaneously, she captured the extraordinary diffused light of crown hall to create a series of photographs dematerializing architectural space into abstraction.
