    Become an Urban Planner at River Edge Ideas Lab

    Monday, Oct 16, 2017 4:00 - 5:30 PM @ Expo 72
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Chicago’s riverfront contains some of the best architecture in the world—and it’s only growing. At this Lab, join some of the nine world-class architectural firms with experience designing award-winning riverfronts, parks and public spaces as they all submit concepts for a unified river edge. Each of the firms has put together a vision for three iconic sites along the river, and they will walk members through their process. Walk away with a better sense of urban planning and place-making, and discover how each design can create accessible, integrated open spaces along the Chicago River.
