In the latest episode of the podcast, "A Lot You Got to Holler" from the Chicago-centric blog Newcity, the publication's design editor Ben Schulman and architecture journalist Zach Mortice sit down with Carol Ross Barney, FAIA, a Chicago-based architect and design principal of local firm Ross Barney Architects. In this episode, the trio discuss the role of the Chicago River in the city's history and various phases of urban development, the current Chicago Riverwalk renovation project, as well as the financing and design of the 606 elevated park, the role and future for public transportation in the city, and more. "Chicago is in a stage where, while it's still growing, it's becoming more mature, so it's not so much building on the fringes, it's building in the heart of the city, it's looking for new investment ... it's this sort of internal rebuilding," Ross Barney says.
