The College of Architecture occupies 24,000 square feet on three levels in this concrete-frame building, which for many years served as a background building for IIT. The building contains the College’s 3rd and 4th year undergraduate studios, PhD program student digital workstations and offices. The building also features a multimedia computer room with state-of-the-art support. The basement level serves as our archival space, general storage, and student project space.

3410 South State also houses the headquarters of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), an international organization and leading body in the field of tall buildings.
