Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
Skokie, Illinois, USA
Schuler Shook provided lighting design services for this new museum designed as a three-part building dedicated to Holocaust survivors and the education of younger generations.
A combination of daylight and electrical lighting underscores the architectural motifs of a dark portion, a “hinge” at the Book of Remembrance and German rail car, and the “light” portion of the museum. Our scope included the exhibit spaces, a 200-seat auditorium, classrooms, offices, the special events hall, café, museum shop and lunch room.
