Our coverage of the Roosevelt Collection is obviously on the border of becoming obsessive based on our recent posts here and here. If you're like us and can't get enough of this developments concept then we highly suggest you take a look and listen to the Chicago Architecture Foundation lecture on RC.
You can listen to Keith Campbell, who was one of the leads in the development, talk through the concept here and download the PowerPoint he is going through by going to this link (it's the February 11th session).
Campbell talks about the planning and design of the project and how it was influenced by European walking streets and plazas. We're a huge fan of this idea, but are skeptical that they can pull it off. If they do we will definitely be in for a treat.
Regardless, we found the lecture very interesting and enjoyable!
