Project Description


For Chicago’s historic Navy Pier, Field Operations has designed a contemporary “Pierscape” that will renew the popular destination’s experience and connection to b water. Re-imagined as a green spine that extends from Lake Michigan back into the city, the Pier's South Dock will anchor a series of thematic rooms filled with engaging social spaces, contemporary architecture, stunning water features, atmospheric lighting, amusements, and seasonal plantings. The new South Dock and adjoining Polk Brothers Park, Pier Park, East End Park, and Crystal Garden will make Navy Pier not only a world-class icon, but also a center of activity and culture that is reflective of an authentic, contemporary Chicago identity.
