FORD CALUMENT ENVIRONMENTAL CENTRE - CHICAGO

The proposal was generated from a series of interwoven pathways, which is generated by a matrix of Threads - "Marsh Streets" that offer a visual link to the marshlands, as well as connect the clusters/ programmatic elements to each other. Out on the site, nature is no longer what we imagine it ot be, but an active lifespace where life below ground, on thegrounds, in the water & in the air is continually manufacturing new environments as it evolves.
The attempt has been to create the very same notion within the built space, as one traverses through it.
