Special emphasis was placed on the urban design and architectural interface to establish the image and character of the parks and open space system. AECOM provided a plan that closely integrated the urban environment with the public realm through recreational areas and a land use pattern responsive to the lake.

Plan components include a large ceremonial plaza and mixed-use development adjacent to the central business district and a linear waterfront promenade on the west shore. The south shore features a historic fishing pier, a neighborhood shopping district around a manmade cove, and a Sustainability Education Center with wetland gardens. A series of active neighborhood parks, an arts and entertainment district, an aquarium, outdoor concert pavilion, and display gardens make up the east shore. The north shore is composed of a waterfront park, wetlands, a signature bridge, and a man-made island for resort and water recreation uses.

Bauhaus Chicago: Design in the…

Design | December 30, 2019

In 1933, when the Nazi regime closed down the German Bauhaus, the renowned school’s history of progressive design education seemingly ended, and with it, its innovative synthesis of art, craft, and technology. Yet by the late 1930s, as World War II loomed on the horizon, a number of the school’s notable designers and educators left Europe and found their way to Chicago, taking positions at the New Bauhaus, later the Institute of Design (ID) and the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). As leaders at these institutions, László Moholy-Nagy and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe not only introduced the Bauhaus’s avant-garde ideals to the American Midwest but set about translating them the region's urban spaces, materials, and industries.
