Hotel EMC2 (in Progress)

Chicago, Illinois

EMC2, a Marriott Autograph hotel in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood, comfortably fits 24 stories and 220 rooms on a diminutive 60-foot-wide by 120-foot-deep site. The  project includes sub-surface construction and concrete shell. Intended for the millennial traveler, the hotel features a high-tech, embossed rainscreen façade that creates an everchanging pixelated “digital” pattern.

Pepper is self-performing all concrete work, which is utilizing upturned beams to maximize the size of all hotel windows.
