Chicago Green Map Project

Posted by Ron Wolford -

The Green Map Project is a Liberal Arts course offered three times a year at The School of the Art Institute for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in urban issues, sustainability and map making.


Each semester a group of students choose one of Chicago's 90+ neighborhoods that is accessible by public transportation, and proceed to locate all sites in the commercial, residential and industrial realm that promote sustainable living choices. Every single street in the neighborhood is inspected to assure record of all possible sites. Upon completion of the physical inspection of the neighborhood, students return to the classroom and design a neighborhood map.
