Conor O'Shea in The Atlantic CityLab

The Atlantic CityLab interviewed landscape architecture program faculty member Conor O'Shea for the article "Could Freight Hubs Become Eco-Villages? A landscape architect proposes exurban shipping districts you'd actually want to visit (or live in)."

The article features "Logistical Ecologies," O'Shea's firm Hinterlands Urbanism and Landscape's proposal for the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial. The project is an 85 year urbanization strategy for Northern Illinois.
