R&D EXPENDITURES AT ILLINOIS UNIVERSITIES RANKED BY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FIELD(2009)


Scenario : Knowledge Packing |

In the end of the city, Chicago had to struggle from the declination as the other reust belt cities did. After the boom at mid-20th century, Chicago struggled to adapt to a variety of adverse economics and social conditions. While other rustbelt cities are still stuggling to adapt the changes, city of Chicago are beggining its adjust to respond to the new era. Chicago along with state of Illinois are investing notable amount of numbers on R&D funding and STEM field and the research indicates the numbers are still increasing. Promienent higher education institution has become important figure of generating innovation. Thus it is possible to conclude that innovation and revitalization will be enabled through interaction between industry and higher education institutions.

02_SITE SELECTION

UNION STOCKYARDS INDUSTRIAL CORRIDOR

City of Chicago is defined by multiple layer of boundaries. Zonings, boundaries, districts, and edges becomes important factor to defined the city itself. To seek an oppertunity site research on zonings, boundaries, districts and edges were done. Zonings such as TIF(Tax incremental finance) district, Enterprise zone, and empowerement zoning in Chicago exist to encourage investments and businesses. These districts has became a tool to seek a optimal site. Also the zonings which should be avoided exist. Conservation area, historical districts, and landmark districts are regions which should be avoided as an oppertunity site.

Through above process the industrial corridors has become an important oppertunity. To select site which can enable the interaction between industry and higher education institution, geological feature of each industrial corridor was investigated so that the region where Union Stock Yard existed has become the strongest oppertunity site.

ENTERPRISE ZONE


TIF ZONE Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a special funding tool used by the City of Chicago to promote public and private investment across the city. Funds are used to build and repair roads and infrastructure, clean polluted land and put vacant properties back to productive use, usually in conjunction with private development projects. Funds are generated by growth in the Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) of properties within a designated district over a 23-year period.

Industrial Corridor The Chicago Plan Commission adopted an industrial land use policy in November 1993. This policy is designed to foster the expansion and modernization of Chicago’s industrial companies by enhancing the physical environment in which they operate.


Landmark Districts In order to define districts those are not developable, research about land mark district and historic district was done. Thus further development on these districts may be avoidable.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, consevation areas were primarilly residential districts whose physical condition urvan planners judged to be between “near-blighted” and “stable.” The 1943 Master Plan of Residential Land Use of Chicago found that 56 square miles of Chicago constituted conservation areas.

From 2015 to 2050

Union Stock Yard was the meatpacking district in Chicago more than a century. This district enabled Chicago to become center for the American meatpacking industry for dacades. However as the 21st century approached the district had to lose its prosperity and became a industrial corridor. The proposal sggest this district to become revitalized through new form of ‘packing’. Instead of meatpacking, the proposal suggests to set up a system which does knowledge-packing. Components such as higher education institutions, corporations, startups, growing companies, and art/design will organize a system, or a machine in order to do knowledge-packing. The porposal will happen sequentially but the each components will be organized spontaneously. By responding the situation of the time, the knowledge- packing machine will transform to an optimal figure to the site and the time.

Scenario : Knowledge Packing |

The higher education institutions in Chicago are capable of providing talent to innovative industry. University of Chicago, University of Illionist at Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology and other Universities and research facilities should be both generator and beneficiary of the Innovation. The institutions will occupy the site with its stronger presence because of its prominent role as a compoenent of the machine. With its strong presence, the institution will interact with both corporations and startup companies by providing talent and receiving fundings similar to Stanford Research Park. Thus that institution will not only invest on innovative industries but receive oppertunity to enhance the innovative culture from the industry. The institution will have sense of public space to invite businesses and talents.

The industry consist variety of field.

The involvement of variety of player at in-between sapce generates synergy for innovation. The study at right page indicates that the infrastructes may be adjustable according to the situation and the time. The formation of the infrastructure may become a blob, triangle, circle, or what-ever that is optimal.

The vacancy of the industrial corridor is notable. Also the inefficient operation of the existing buildings became an important issue to the industry. Thus the proposal suggests to transform the abandoned, inefficiently operated factories and buildings to become lofts and studios for startup companies and design companies. The nature of innovative industry need to have involvement of both corporation and growing companies. Also it needs to have involvement of both technical field and design field. Thus the proposal suggest to operate the factories and existing buildings as innovation generating space for design companies and startup companies. As these components of the machine becomes active, the ‘hip’ culture will influence the collective community interanlly and externally.

Identity is relational and relation is defiend through network between different components. With defined components, the proposal suggest to create a network in order to assemble the ‘machine’. As a gesture of network, the proposal suggest covering over the existing and the new infrastructure. Through this network, a collective community will be established among the innovative industry.
