On July 21st, 11 Harrington Interior Design students and two faculty members took a very unique field trip: one that took them to the open construction space atop the Ritz Carlton Residences currently under construction!

During the exciting trip, students learned the in’s and out’s of real world construction projects from start to finish, including background on how restoration is handled during the construction of the historic building located on the Magnificent Mile of Chicago. From an outside construction elevator, to safety gear, to breathtaking 360* views of the lake and downtown Chicago, the field trip was a once in the lifetime opportunity for the interior design program students to see the up and coming space.
