Dezeen – Top 10 U.S. Architecture Projects

Ross Barney Architects’ design for the McDonald’s Chicago Flagship is named one of Dezeen’s Top 10 U.S. Architecture Projects for 2018.

“The past 12 months saw the completion of Zaha Hadid’s condos in New York, Amazon’s plant-filled Spheres in Seattle, and a surprising McDonald’s restaurant in Chicago. US editor Dan Howarth continues our review of 2018 with these and more of America’s most interesting architecture from this year.”

“Fast-food chain McDonald’s replaced its iconic Rock N Roll restaurant in Chicago with a building by Ross Barney Architects that is “unlike any in the company’s portfolio”.

The steel and timber structure boasts a number of sustainable elements, including a canopy of solar panels, and was compared to tech giant Apple’s stores by several news outlets.”
