In 1965 the Plaza of the Americas was constructed, which is located between the Wrigley Building and 430 North Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The space features a flagpole for each member nation in the Organization of American States as well as Illinois and Chicago flags, along with a sculpture of Benita Juarez, Mexico’s first president of indigenous descent.
Recently, the project underwent a renovation to update the public space and it was decided that Monolithic Membrane 6125 would be used as the waterproofing membrane of choice.
