i was lucky enough to be martin felsen's teaching assistant for a year at IIT and i had the opportunity to participate in the research he has been doing together with the students for urban design.
in this project each team had a week to prepare but URBANLAB's ideas have been definetely emerging from the long chicago megalopolis research. its kind of interesting that there is an american firm touching the overloaded words of sustainable, eco-design in a non-boring way. by looking into their proposal i think its an original idea responding to the characteristics of chicago.
