From MPC's February 2003 Media Tips
MPC is collaborating with the Chicago Architecture Foundation on a two-month
exhibition that will explore the influences good design and sound planning could
have on Chicago's future. Three architecture firms have taken aspects of
the Central Area Plan for downtown Chicago, the zoning ordinance rewrite and
Chicago Metropolis 2020's regional plan and designed visionary concepts for how
they might be expressed.
Among events that complement the "Invisible City: Planning for
Chicago's Future" exhibition, is a panel on zoning and planning moderated by MPC
Vice President of External Affairs Peter Skosey. Other speakers will be Jacky
Grimshaw, vice president for policy, Center for Neighborhood Technology; Martin
Jaffe, J.D., professor, University of Illinois Chicago; and Barbara Lawrence,
executive director, New Jersey Future.
The panel is on Thursday, March 6 at 6 p.m., at the ArchiCenter Lecture Hall,
224 S. Michigan Ave. Refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m. For
reservations, call 312.922.3432, ext. 909.
