Opening Statement for Chicago Visions
This blog is about the city of Chicago. It will look at the city itself, the environment, the architecture, the organizations and the people who call 'the Third Coast' home. It's written out of love for the town that Jaime Lerner and Alex Kotlowitz, thousands of miles apart, referred to affectionately as the ultimate 'real' city. Chicago is all at once grounded in its neighborhoods, complex in its power struggles, simple in its beauty, and almost always misunderstood by outsiders. But most importantly, it is home.
