Vision of chicago

1,749

Published on

This project explores urban possibilities for the next century. Rather than a conventional "plan", however, it examines a variety of physical, procedural and organizational concepts now emerging or that soon could emerge from evolving technologies and changing social forces. Overall, the project is composed of four separate but integrated studies focusing on urban infrastructure, transport, environmental features (river and lake front), and the role of nature in the city.
