Green in the Windy City: A sample of Chicago’s sustainable architecture in the works

November 01, 2006 |

Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art is hosting an exhibit, “Sustainable Architecture in Chicago: Works in Progress,” that presents several green projects currently in design or construction by Chicago-based architects. The projects were selected because they reflect a rising awareness of the need to create architecture and open space for enhanced public use while conserving resources and contributing positively to the life of the city and its inhabitants. A sampling of the projects are presented on this opening spread.
