DAM[N] THE CHICAGO RIVER COLLABORATION: Fox + Bear SITE: Chicago, Illinois A proposed visitor’s center and sauna for Ping Tom Park in Chicago, Dam[n] the Chicago River seeks to sensationalize the polluted waters of the river while simultaneously cleaning them and providing an urban spa and swimming hole. Diversion of the river from its present, channelized course recreates the historic flow of the river in this section. Along this historic flow, a wetland provides filtration and remediation for the water that passes through. Once the water reaches Ping Tom Park, an architectural insertion provides a public viewing area of the river along with a spa and swimming area fed from the wetland. [23]
