      URBAN RENEWAL: AN INSIDER'S LOOK AT MILLENNIUM PARK


      Chicago's Millennium Park has redefined the city's lakefront and
      drawn the attention of cities across the world. Uhlir was appointed
      design director of Millennium Park by Mayor Richard M. Daley in 1998.
      In this capacity, he oversaw construction and completion of the 24.5-
      acre park, coordinating the contributions of world-class artists and
      architects, including Frank Gehry, Jaume Plensa, Anish Kapoor and the
      landscape design firm of Gustafson Guthrie Nichols. Uhlir will
      discuss the development and impact of Millennium Park and the many
      aspects of the park programming that have made it one of the most
      talked-about urban development programs around.

          If you can't make it to the event, I interview Ed Uhlir, the park's landscape designer, the city historian, the artists who designed the sculptures, etc., a few years ago. You can download the audio free here:
