Landscape Architect: Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates

Bloomingdale Trail - A 3-mile urban intervention on a previously abandoned elevated railway line in Chicago connects through diverse cultural neighborhoods. Designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh and Associates and working with Landscape Forms, Fine Concrete fabricated a series of ultra high performance concrete benches whose differing types combined to create spaces for inhabitation - vibrant gathering places and contemplative retreats from the city.
