State Street Village is the newest residence hall at IIT, the school where Helmut Jahn received his graduate degree. What appears to be a single unified fašade running down State Street, is actually 3 buildings, with an exterior mesh skinning connecting the entire length. Courtyards and passageways further interrupt the linear progression. The SSV was part of a larger drive to revitalize a part of the IIT campus left neglected by its proximity to the Green Line. Directly north of the SSV lies Rem Koolhaas' McCormick Tribune Center and across the street is Mies' Crown Hall. Unlike the Tribune Center, which minimized the train noise by encasing the tracks in a concrete tube, the SSV chose a more cost effective approach by using lots of concrete, and varying thicknesses of glass to deaden the noise.
