MCDONALDS CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS
Oak Brook, IL
While at Sasaki, Heather Thompson-Ryan was Senior Design Associate for this corporate campus outside Chicago. Developed in a native oak forest, the lake-side headquarter buildings and McDonald’s famed Hamburger University form the core of the campus together with the Hyatt-run Lodge. Native planting reinforce and enhance the existing woodlands, seamlessly folding the new development into an archetypal Midwestern Landscape.
