ArcheWorks in Chicago has Plans for a City After the City. This 12-18-2013 Panel Explores The Idea of Water in the Chicago Expander.

Trickle Up: The Scale of Water in Chicago
6:00 PM Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Location: Lecture Hall Gallery, Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 S Michigan Ave 
This discussion among some of the city's leading thinkers on water will address our region's greatest natural asset, the current climate crisis, and potential actions on multiple scales that can re-shape our understanding of the city and region.  At one end of the scale, water issues surpass typical boundaries of jurisdiction and governance, trickling up to define and impact unexpectedly larger territories.  At a smaller scale, individual and community actions can increasingly bring influence outside the systems of big infrastructure.
