Social scientists and architecture and design scholars from the University of Chicago, Northern Illinois, Berkeley, and the Art Institute discuss questions raised by the projects presented in the exhibition as well as their own relevant research, and their implications for understanding Chicago, the Great Lakes Region, and the contemporary city in general.
