Inspired by urban waterfront transformations around the country, the Chicago River Edge Ideas Lab exhibition explored innovative concepts for placemaking along the Chicago River. Four unique visions demonstrate how riverfronts can reclaim their use as recreational and natural resources, catalyze development, and become hubs of entertainment and civic life.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how city officials worked with landscape architects to engage the public in a visioning process aimed at establishing actionable development guidelines.
  • Explore the forward-thinking riverfront design concepts from four landscape architecture firms.
  • Gain insight into recent planning initiatives, built projects, and future planned projects along the riverfront influenced by a large-scale visioning process.
