Fermilab has been named one of the American Institute of Architects’ 200 Great Places in Illinois.
To commemorate the bicentennial of Illinois’ statehood in 2018, AIA presented the selections, which were chosen by a statewide committee of architects, local officials and other organizations in an effort to showcase the best of Illinois. The selections emphasize various types of design creations, including works by urban planners, landscape architects, local craftspeople and builders. Selections emphasize a collective sense of place created in cities and towns, and in structures designed by individual architects. Spanning the entire period of human settlement in Illinois, the list contributes a strong historical dimension to understanding the vast power of our shared architectural culture.
