The urban waterfront : expanding Chicago's southern lakeshore environment
Marlow, Christopher M.
Motloch, John L.
This comprehensive project took place along the shores of Lake Michigan just south of downtown Chicago, IL. The goal was to create an urban waterfront park that would be historically significant in terms of location and theme while becoming a unique experience along the lakefront. This project provided connections to important contextual elements such as the existing park space network as well as surrounding neighborhoods and communities, in hopes of increasing pedestrian activity in this area. The waterfront park also offered a multitude of passive and active uses which encouraged as many user groups as possible to explore the site.
