The University of Chicago has commissioned world-famous architects to build a new complex that can only be described as ’Hogwarts-meets-the-Googleplex.’

Studio Gang Architects—and its MacArthur-certified “genius” principal and 2011 Fast Company Master of Design, Jeanne Gang—will build a $148 million residence hall.

Public amenities open to all residents include a penthouse “reading room,” courtyards, and a pair of “community commons” lounges, while the dining hall extends the Hogwarts theme with long tables devoted to each house.
