March 7, 2010

Our 6th annual meeting took place on Sunday, March 7, 2010 at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.

Attendees visited the latest CAF exhibition, Chicago Model City, which tells the stories behind the planning of Chicago. The centerpiece of Chicago Model City is a 320-square-foot model of downtown that enables you to see Chicago as you’ve never seen it before. It is the only accurate and up-to-date model of the city.

Chicago Model City also features a unique 1950s model of the Eisenhower Expressway and Blue Line; a digital visualization of demolition and rebuilding on Chicago’s Near South Side; a model portraying the green renovation of the Willis Tower; a visualization of runway expansions at O’Hare International Airport; and an exploration of the 1909 Plan of Chicago.
