What will urban life be like in 2050? Several local architects offer insights and predictions for a future Chicago.

The world is becoming more populated and the growth is urban.

In the face of unrelenting change, creating functional, livable cities is a monumental task for us all. Innovative design can solve some of our most acute challenges in urban housing, infrastructure, mobility, ecology, and personal health and well-being. Healthy cities equate to a healthier world.

This exhibit kicks off CAC’s multi-year investigation into the development of future cities. Come glimpse our new reality as posed by several top Chicago design firms.
