Team X Navy Pierscape Design Proposal

February 3, 2012

On February 1, Team X presented their proposal for the redesign of Chicago’s Navy Pier. Navy Pier is Chicago’s most popular public space and will receive a facelift in time for it centennial celebration.

Harley Ellis Devereaux is a member of Team X that also includes Xavier Vendrell Studio, dataAE + XVS, Grimshaw Architects, Faithful Gould, Studio/lab, Lisa Freiman, Creative Time, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Site Design Group, ARUP, Schuler Shook, Nelson Nygaard, Fluidity, PORT A + U, Play-time, and Richie Gelles.

The principle that inspired Team X is the notion that Navy Pier is, first and foremost, a Pier and Chicago’s only Pier. Team X sought to respect, reveal, and amplify the physical and experiential qualities of Navy Pier and to make it an unrivaled destination that is unique in its own right. To make it authentically Chicago.
