After the City, the City is a forum to address the future of the city accepting that the actuality of our current version of urbanity has surpassed the scale and scope of what we once considered the city. What possibilities open once we let go of antiquated models of the city and what are the possibilities for effecting transformational change within this new configuration?
What strategies are most effective in re-shaping structure at differing scales of governance and which actions influence trajectories across scales? As cities across the globe grapple with the notion of resilience and preparedness for cycles of disaster that move beyond the physical, this series assumes the potential for creative planning to emerge from multiple fields.
Policy-makers, urbanists, artists, and designers will offer their perspectives on issues that increasingly transgress disciplinary boundaries. This series of discussions around water issues is organized by the Chicago Expander program at Archeworks and Joshua Stein, in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP and the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
