Thank you Whet for recognizing what lies beneath:
"Being one of the world’s most prominent architects, her [Jeanne Gang] ideas have gotten a lot of attention. More under the radar is the research of University of Illinois landscape architecture professor Mary Pat McGuire, which Zach Edelson covered last year for The Architect’s Newspaper. McGuire’s ideas are similar to ones the city and Gang have been working on—replacing paved surfaces with permeable ones—but she’s identified underground sand deposits that could serve as natural reservoirs, and prioritizes the renovation of surface infrastructure where it will work best with what lies underneath."
