Wallpaper* – “Letter from Chicago”

Wallpaper* editor Giovanna Dunmall writes a Letter from Chicago, highlighting construction in the Windy City, including our work on the Chicago Riverwalk.

“Though long neglected and even actively avoided the Chicago River has continued its gradual comeback into the life of the city. The recent completion of the 1.5 mile Riverwalk project has seen locals and visitors flock to walk, jog and spend time in its redesigned riverfront pathways and squares. The past few years has also seen the inauguration of other impressive urban public amenities such as the 606 elevated bike-pedestrian trail (Chicago’s 2.7 mile snazzy take on the High Line that is both loved but also critiqued for its effect on real estate prices in Chicago’s Northwest Side) and a series of attractive and sinuous pedestrian bridges (some yet to be completed) that connect the neighbourhood of Bronzeville to the city’s much-loved lakefront and promote the use of cycling.”
