A critical exploration of urban space exploring how space & place intersect with memory & justice.
Jane’s Walk Chicago is partnering with Columbia College Chicago for its Chicago Pattern Project, part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial for an experiential urban adventure in the South Loop – starting at the 619 S. Wabash Ave.
What is the “social architecture” that holds communities together? What stories are hidden in urban space? How do policies of decades-past impact our lives today? What lessons does Printer’s Row have for undoing Redlining? And what does Dearborn Park say about race, class, and privelege?
How do we STOP, SEE, and REFLECT on the space around us? Explore this and more on a critical walking tour exploring the past and present of the South Loop – a curious place where past and present intersect daily.
“…a living culture is forever changing, without losing itself as a framework and context of change. The reconstruction of a culture is not the same as its restoration.” ― Jane Jacobs
