Historical Context:
Josef Paul Kleihues, a German architect, undertook the task of designing the new building for the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Chicago in 1991. This was the first American project for Kleihues, who used his "poetic rationalist" style in the design of the museum. The staircase stands as a strong example of Kleihues' unique and innovative sense of design. Photograph by Steve Hall.
