The article discusses how fan walls installed at the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC) in Illinois, solved some of the problems associated with upgrading the museum's air-handling units (AHU). McGuire Engineers recommended a fan wall option as the best ventilation solution because it risked the least amount of downtime. It also minimized the need to remove or any of the public spaces within the AIC.
