How can you transform obsolete infrastructure into places that enrich a community? Chicago boasts many excellent examples of creating new public spaces by reusing obsolete infrastructure and historic buildings. Go behind the scenes at some of the city’s most successful redevelopment projects—including the Chicago Riverwalk (a former port facility) and Millennium Park (a one-time rail yard)—and discuss their evolution with the architects, planners, advocates, and developers responsible for creating them. Transportation: Walking. Includes lunch.
