Metropolis in Ascension: Culture, Design, and Global Preeminence in Chicago

Sarah Herda, Director, Graham Foundation

While the Windy City may have much to boast about, challenges remain, including residential segregation and a cohesive, centralized strategy. Join the Council and Graham Foundation's Sarah Herda for a discussion on Chicago’s architectural and urban design history and future, and how practical design interventions can advance the quality of life for all residents.
