The ramen-noodle-like pipe structural system of New Ecology Building of University of Chicago catches the attention along the Chicago River. Continuous, curvy, and eye-catching pipes work as beams and columns, and those frames hold and raise the whole vivarium from the ground which created the open ground floor. The number of pipes and the braces were exaggerated extremely to reach the points where it can hold the heavy loads of the building. Chicago Ecology Building includes vivarium, classrooms, labs, offices, lecture hall, and theater.
