Last month we walked with the Mardi Gras Indians by the landscape of change.
With all the talk of the buildings coming down I found little discussion of the impact of changing the public space, and what that means for future walks through the City. I found this lecture series very interesting
In it they discuss the reconfiguration of public space and what that means for 8 blocks in Chicago. I found this article from 2003 which seems to suggest that the plans for Stateway would set policy for the rest of Public Housing nationwide. This map illustrates a little of what I am talking about.
The buildings may be gone but who was there before will continue to struggle with identity and place.
