Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on the Chicago lakefront and public space.

This is a one-week workshop offered two times for 80 teachers recruited nationally on Chicago's downtown lakefront as a public place. It is planned for summer 2010. It features walking tours, visual image and presentation seminars led by leading scholars including the co-directors that trace the history of the downtown lakefront to the present-day, relating that development to local, national and global trends in urban development focusing on public places. The major themes are: 1. The idea of a public place as a center of meaning constructed by political, economic, social, and historical experiences.2. Chicago's downtown lakefront as a center of meaning both influenced by local, national, and global experiences and, in turn, influencing other urban public places nationally and globally. 3. The downtown lakefront as a representative example of urban public places. The focus is on Grant and Millennium parks as well as the museum campus and Soldier Field.
