Research on the City 2014

This grant program and exhibition were generously supported by Cynthia (A.B.'83 LSA) and Alan Berkshire (B.S.'82).

The 2014 Research on the City Projects

In its third year, Research on the City is a competitive faculty research grant program, intended to foster interdisciplinary research on urban topics. Grants to fund a yearlong study were awarded to five research teams. Projects in this year's competition were required to focus on urban challenges or questions faced in Chicago. This exhibition demonstrates the findings of their research and suggests further avenues to explore. Cynthia Berkshire (A.B.'83 LSA) and Alan Berkshire (B.S.'82) have generously supported the grant initiative and the exhibition.
