TOPOS: "Owned by the Public" / by Conor O'Shea

Conor O'Shea reviews The 606 for Topos.

Excerpt:

"In Chicago, The 606 represents an new era of park-building in which municipal interagency collaborations manage complex teams of consultants to tackle the physical, social, environmental, and financial demands presented by outmoded infrastructure. Under this new model, landscape architecture is used as a common framework for building new pubic spaces."
