Big Box Housing 'Chicago Architecture:Ten Visions'

 

Big Box Housing 'Chicago Architecture: Ten Visions'

 

Chicago, Illinois

We took the opportunity presented by our participation in the "Chicago Architecture: 10 Visions" exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago to speculate about the future of affordable housing in the city. Our proposal insists on the creation of a sustainable architecture that recycles a whole typology to transform obsolescent shopping malls and derelict big-box discount stores into loft developments for new urban communities.
