Chicago 2070 - A speculative future project
Introduction: Over the last few decades, severe wildfires on the west coast and flooding on the east coast pushed migrants in search of urban comforts to Chicago’s third coast. Data and technology-rich corporations began to embed themselves in the city looking for the talent and started to gain power over city institutions. In this context, we welcome you to the opening of The Bean Memorial in 2070, Chicago’s premiere landmark experience accessed through your Amazon Prime™ membership.
