Loop Alliance ACTIVATE

Project: ACTIVATE Gateways
Location: Chicago, IL
Client: The Chicago Loop Alliance
Team: PORT, Kathryn Achenbach
Timeline: June-Sept, 2017

Each month during the summer of 2017, The Chicago Loop Alliance ACTIVATE program transforms iconic Loop alleys into pop-up urban experiences, featuring art, music, and more in unique urban settings. PORT created a different 16’x16’ gateway structure for each event, consisting of a perspectival photo montage merging contemporary and historic images of alley activities related to each event theme: play, waste, energy and illicit activities.
