Mecca Flats Revealed at IIT Architecture

CLOSED

 

CAPA is pleased to have lent exhibitionary materials to IIT Architecture for the public unveiling of recently recovered artifacts from the Mecca Flat. 

Recent work on the mechanical plumbing system situated on the southwest corner of the grounds of S. R. Crown Hall led to the discovery of intact tile flooring from the Mecca, among other artifacts. Work was suspended, and a team of local historians and urban archaeologists was assembled to uncover and excavate a significant portion of the remnants.
