Since its opening in June 2011, the Poetry Foundation building designed by Chicago’s John Ronan Architects has been praised widely. The November 2011 issue of Architectural Record notes, “In keeping with the art form it serves, the new Poetry Foundation is a respectful, restrained building that employs an economy of means and methods, just as a good poem employs an economy of language.” The concrete, glass, steel, and wood building complies with the Silver Level of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. The Poetry Foundation also houses the Midwest’s only library dedicated to poetry. Attendees will have a tour of the library and exhibition space, as well as a close-up look at the building.
