Clare Lyster

Journal of Architecture Education. 64:2. March 2011: pp 100-111


The essay contemplates airline infrastructure as a vehicle for new forms of urban organization framed through a series of alternative plans that conceive Chicago’s O’Hare Airport as a new public ecology at the global, regional and metropolitan scale. The essay includes work from a graduate research studio conducted by Clare Lyster at the UIC SoA (2008). Winner of the 2010/11 JAE Award for Design Scholarship.
