conservation image Heritage Partnership: Exploring the Unknown

Tree Studios, the oldest-known artist studios in the United States, and the adjacent Medinah Temple, one of the finest U.S. examples of Middle Eastern-style Shriner temples—both located in downtown Chicago. A partnership between the City of Chicago and a local developer involving public-sector financing of private development enabled the preservation and adaptive reuse of these two landmarks.
