The way of bringing this idea to reality is by creating a succession of elevated runways and platforms, above the street level, creating a transversal connection between levels.
The height of this construction may vary adapting to the urban landscape. It’s not a direct reproduction of rail infrastructures but an abstract representation of it, with a striking presence of concrete that unifies the project.

Michigan avenue can be considered as a linear neighborhood, all the activity is concentrated in The Northern section, which works as the spine of the Magnificent Mile.

 

We find the cause in a phenomenon called ‘Urban Canyon’, which appears when the width of the street is minimum compared to the height of the buildings. Having high-rise buildings on both sides of Michigan avenue makes us walk in a straight line, only focusing on what we have in front of us, and not even being conscious of the transversal narrower streets.
