Ever noticed the severe lack of public recycling receptacles in Chicago's neighborhoods? So did the Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), so they decided to hold a competition to design some solutions. After receiving over 400 conceptual designs from all around the world for "ReThink ReCycle ReDesign", the top 25 have been prototyped and will be exhibited this Friday on Daley Plaza. Come down around noon to see all of the concepts in the flesh, vote for your favorite, hear some remarks from "Da Mare", and promote public awareness of Chicago as an ecologically sustainable city. (Disclosure: I'm one of the finalists exhibiting... come say hi!)
