You can’t build east of Lake Shore Drive—or can you? Imagine a Lake Shore Drive moved farther west, creating 225 acres of new lakefront real estate running alongside Grant Park. Then, imagine this land transformed into a playground for the public and real estate developers alike. That’s what CIW Artist-in-Residences Christopher Marcinkoski and Andrew Moddrell of PORT Urbanism are proposing with The Big Shift, a potential innovative take on expanding and improving Chicago’s most valued public spaces. In this Artist-in-Residence Special Event, Marcinkoski and Moddrell will reveal their designs for The Big Shift, while providing a retrospective look at how Chicago’s lakefront has changed over the years.
