Chicago Navy Pier


Team X, led by Chicago- based Xavier Vendrell Studio reveals its new plan for the Chicago Navy Pier.  Team X transforms the old pier with a unifying and rejuvenating program capable of evolving and changing over time.  A lush landscape contrasts the hardscape of Chicago, creating an urban park that functions like a plaza.  Circular disks of varying circumferences puncture the landscape with various types of program and natural growth, accompanied by pocket parks, terraces and kiosks.




The new Pierscape proposed by team X offers access to all existing programs and activities, while creating opportunities for new ones.  Elements featured in the design offer more than one function, aiming to create a 21st century pier that is contemporary, viable, sustainable, enduring, flexible, and evolving.
