Nichols Tower

A website for a new, collaborative tower in Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood

The Nichols Tower is a newly rehabbed building in Homan Square, a community development center in the Lawndale neighborhood in Chicago. When it opens in the fall, it will be a hub for art education, youth leadership development, job training, and urban farming. Each organization will be working together in some way: one organization’s output will be another’s input. I interpreted this idea of collaboration into a playful animation that also references the verticality of the tower.
