Today’s post features sample architectural exterior building photos of The Harold Washington Social Security Government Building Renovation in Chicago. Our client, an architectural commercial construction company, requested building photography at multiple project locations of commercial buildings around Chicago and the suburbs showcasing past projects for the client’s marketing and construction portfolio of images for business.

The Harold Washington Social Security Center is located in the West Loop of Chicago. The headquarters for SSA’s Chicago regional office was built in 1975. The government building recently underwent a renovation. The 10-story building is made of composite steel, a reinforced concrete structural frame clad in pre-cast concrete panels, and a glass and spandrel curtain wall. The construction team in charge of the concrete building with new modern glass renovation Chicago construction project are Jacobs Ryan Associates Landscape Architects, Bergland Construction, and Harmon Inc.

The modernized, new Harold Washington Social Security Government Building occupies one city block of Chicago’s West Loop. City of Chicago Harold Washington Social Security Government building features public art at the building’s entrance. A giant, 101-foot-tall, outdoor steel sculpture baseball bat named Batcolumn (or Bat Column) by artist Claes Oldenburg.

Batcolumn Chicago Sculpture Art by Artist Claes Oldenburg Bat Column

Chicago’s skyscrapers, chimney stacks, neoclassical columns, steel bridge cross-bracing and construction cranes inspired the design of Claes Oldenburg’s heroic- scaled, lattice-shell baseball bat. On observing Chicago’s flat terrain, the Swedish-born artist once commented, “the real art here is architecture, or anything that really stands up.” Oldenburg’s Batcolumn demonstrates the artist’s fascination with scale and the changes in the significance of everyday objects when they are enlarged to monumental proportions. Like all of Oldenburg’s monuments, Batcolumn combines a humorous and irreverent attitude toward popular objects with meticulous construction details and handling of scale and proportion. It can alternately be seen as a reference to historical monumental columns, a salute to the American institution of baseball or a tribute to the steel industry.  Source, The Chicago Public Art Guide

The photography shoot had a primary focus on photographs of the new designed entrance and the highlight of the hospital renovation modernization construction at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.  The new modern entrance and new glass exterior building facade is highly visible upon first arriving at the hospital’s main entrance drive.  The main entrance doors features new floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlooks a landscaped garden.  This new all glass facade opens up and modernizes the old main entrance space, allowing an abundance of natural light to enter into the building. Both the new entryway and addition of a serpentine glass wall construction seamlessly flows visitors into the new Paul and Barbara Hills Center for Advanced Care wing.  This modern glass addition dramatically modernizes the building’s main elevation on the Southwest side of the healthcare facility. The building’s glass entry, glass floor to ceiling southwest facade, and glass serpentine wall of the property by Harmon Construction Inc.Harmoninc.com construction company.
