The Air We Breathe

The Chicago Clean Air Design Challenge is a regional design contest to address issues of air quality in two of Chicago’s most affected neighborhoods- Pilsen and Little Village. Residents of Pilsen and Little Village live below two coal powered plants that regularly emit lead and other toxins into the air. High rates of asthma and other air-quality illnesses are pressing concerns for the residents of these neighborhoods and for much of Chicago. This is the critical environmental concern of the moment in your city and you are a designer. What will you do about it?
