Positioning Pullman: Collaborative Ideas Workshop for America's Newest National Monument

Supported in part by Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, Chicago Community Trust, and Alphawood Foundation

On February 19, 2015,  President Obama visited Chicago's Historic Pullman District to establish the district as a National Monument within the National Park System.

Positioning Pullman is a collaborative ideas workshop hosted by the National Parks Conservation Association and the Chicago chapter of The American Institute of Architects.

Over the course of three days, teams of volunteer urban planners, architects, landscape architects, engineers, economists and historians will convene to contribute their time and expertise in support of Pullman National Monument.

You're invited to attend the following events:

Thursday, April 16, 6:30pm-8:30pm:
Public Kick-off Community Meeting
Greenstone Church, 11211 South St. Lawrence Ave., Chicago  

Saturday, April 18, Noon-3pm:
Design Workshop Open House
Factory Building, 11057 South Cottage Grove Ave., Chicago

On Friday, April 17th, design teams will brainstorm ideas and recommendations to make the Pullman neighborhood stronger, the national park visitor experience richer, and the adjacent neighborhoods, attractions, and region better-connected. Design concepts will be unveiled on Saturday, April 18th.
