New Visions for Chicago's Garfield Boulevard


In the spring of 2013, SOM's City Design Practice led an advanced studio at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Called "Rebuilding a Boulevard," the course explored the issues and opportunities for the Garfield Boulevard corridor in Chicago. The first video, which shows imagery from the corridor, invited students to interpret the site’s existing conditions for himself or herself. The second video features students discussing their observations and ideas for the corridor's revitalization.
