INFRASTRUCTURES


Infra/structures dis/connect people to/from place

Green infrastructure refers to a collection of natural areas that can provide solutions to issues such as flooding, provide habitats, maintain ecosystems, and a variety of benefits. In contrast, the white routes represent the network of interstates converging in the area, fragmenting this patchwork of green areas. This juxtaposition of different structures alludes to the tension between the natural and the unnatural, and that which connects or disconnects.

The map is derived from a green infrastructure vision for the Chicago area.
