Columbia College Chicago

"Chicago Pattern Project" Presented by René King and Petra Probstner

Please join us for an experiential urban adventure in the South Loop.
The Chicago Pattern Project is occupying the storefronts at 619 S. Wabash Avenue and 33 E. Ida B Wells Drive in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
The project searches to rebuild environmental attachment, and focuses on issues surrounding identity, movement and empirical experiences in the urban fabric. The resulting patterns can be viewed superficially for visual pleasure (STOP), can be deciphered to gain access to actual information (SEE) and in its most involved form, can kindle a process of investigation of the viewers own spaces and experiences in order to connect them to their physical environment (REFLECT).
