A model of urbanism that can be the catalyst for development
The University of Illinois at Chicago has asked for a vision of the future, one that addresses their concerns about identity, uniqueness, destination, interaction, community, and interdisciplinary collaboration. The problem goes beyond what can be addressed with a single building.
The solution is a model of urbanism that can be the catalyst for development and ameliorate the physical isolation of the campus. The new zoning guidelines address the combining of programs, the relationship of the buildings to the street, open space, parking, and height restrictions within the campus core. A model of urbanism.
