Building upon the guidelines outlined in David Brown’s “The Available City” project, nine firms were commissioned to interpret these rules and generate new architectural scenarios. Starting from a combination of vacant city-owned and private lots, each project defines and incorporates collective spaces along with other private uses. The result, on display at the Chicago Cultural Center, is a series of propositions that open up a constructive conversation about alternative ways to address vacancy in the city and put forward new scenarios that have the potential to redefine parts of Chicago.
The nine participant firms are 3D Design Studio, Ania Jaworska, Central Standard Office of Design, Jahn, JGMA, Krueck+Sexton, Landon Bone Baker, Tigerman McCurry. Members of each team will discuss their proposals, focusing on the specific issues that the projects address and the possibilities they generate.

This program is organized by Iker Gil as part of the exhibition “BOLD: Alternative Scenarios for Chicago.”
