Patchwork in Chicago

I recently visited the University of Illinois in Chicago.

The Pliable Plane
on from March 3 to May 9, 2016
at UIC, architecture department
The architecture department had a patchwork installation in their hallway.

The makers are Jennifer Meakins, Nicholas Rummler, Antonio Torres, Aura Venckunaite. The students helped install it.

I had a fun weekend. The city is fabulous.

As I looked around I felt sad that Toronto didn't look as great. In my opinion, Toronto was developed with a poor vision.

The Toronto waterfront is an issue and it seems to me the high-rises that are built are just that- super tall buildings. Many of the ones I saw in Chicago were conceptual and had links to the city.
