milan 2014: big pictures

Every year in Milan we see designs that embraces the smallest detail, enhances our daily lives, and look ahead to the future—all the while, looking pretty marvelous.

Armed with cutting edge technology and more condensed urban populations, how will be we transported—inside and out of them—and how will we harness the energy needed to sustain them? How will food be provided—and water?

These big picture concepts present monumental challenges designers are prepared to address—if only one person-powered bicycle pedal, or one sustainable energy petal, at a time.

bike the drive, 2011

photo by: CGAphotoWhat: Bike the Drive
When: Sunday, May 29
Where: Lake Shore Drive, Chicago

One day of every year since 2002, Lake Shore Drive is closed to motor vehicle traffic and open only to cyclists for 30 miles—15 north of downtown, and 15 south—from 5:30 to 9:45am.

Take advantage of the situation and get prepped—and don’t forget registration is required to bike the scenic and historic route.

Bonus? Proceeds from the ride help the Active Transportation Alliance to continue improving bike lanes, walking paths and transit in the region. So besides enjoying the festival in Grant Park, it’s for a good cause.
