Murphy/Jahn – News

Chicago architect Gene Summers, 83, dies.

Gene was an assistant to Mies ven der Rohe. He headed IIT’s College of Architecture.

Gene worked with Mies on such celebrated projects as the Seagram Building in New York.

Gene Summers was later partner in charge of design at C.F. Murphy Associates, where he was the chief architect of McCormick Place, completed in 1971.

Summers started his own architectural firm in 1966, hiring a young German architect – Helmut Jahn – who had come to Chicago to study at IIT.

But then McCormick Place burned, prompting Summers and Jahn to join C.F. Murphy Associates, where they collaborated on the conventional hall’s replacement.
