Joe Gonzalez Presents Jesse White Community Center at Chicago Architecture Foundation “Lunch Talk”

On November 12, Joe Gonzalez, FAIA, Ghafari’s Global Director of Design, led a presentation on the newly opened Jesse White Community Center during a “Lunch Talk” at the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF). 

The 30,000-square-foot Jesse White Community Center and Field House serves as the headquarters for the Chicago Park District gymnastics program and the internationally renowned Jesse White Tumblers, as well as provides fitness and assembly rooms for members of the surrounding community. Providing a vital anchor for community engagement in Chicago’s near north side neighborhood, the building is composed of a series of largely self-contained architectonic forms elegantly assembled.
