Visit the Chicago Architecture Foundation's River Edge Ideas Lab exhibit to glimpse into an alternate future for the Chicago River.
Drawing on ideas from 9 world-class design firms (including Omni Ecosystems), this exhibit presents a bold revisioning of the Chicago River. Participating firms conceptualized solutions for three distinctly challenging landscape typologies identified along the river’s edge.
Omni collaborated with Perkins + Will on a concept titled "Third Nature" which seeks to proactively improve the river's ecological conditions, enhance social equity through access, foster a productive river, and create a memorable human experience.
On display through June, these concepts and public feedback will inform the City of Chicago's new design guidelines. See this exciting exhibition and add your comments. Details below.
