Anti-Cruelty Society, Chicago
This interesting building, featuring a front design which – in an abstract form – is reminiscent of the face of a dog, is completely clad in light terracotta elements. These are used as profiled panels right up to the apex, but also shade-giving „sun roofs“ made of baguettes. The rounded apertures that are perfectly framed by the ceramic elements are particularly noteworthy. These elements were cut into this special shape with the aid of water jets and laser cutters.
