There’s a certain dorky pleasure in the reading lists of teams vying for design competitions. The big names paired with the dependable locals. The firms with very busy dance cards that everyone seems to want. The odd random people with no discernible reason to be involved. The 52 teams that responded to the Navy Pier RFQ have all those in spades. Zaha! Foster + Partners, BIG, OMA! Every prominent Chicago architect! Hoerr Schaupt Landscape Architects on no less than four teams! We’ll be watching to see who makes the next round. Amusement aside, it’s great to see so many prominent local and international designers vying to improve the iconic pier.

    so many good teams! i totally agree with you about reading the list. maybe the pier was too cliche for Jeanne – although I would have loved to see what she came up with. too many favorites to predict!

  2. jGo says:

    #31 OMA/SGA. SGA = Studio Gang Architects, no?

  3. jGo says:

    See #31 OMA/SGA. SGA is Studio Gang Architects, no?

  4. I think you may be right. Thanks for catching that.

  5. anonymous says:

    Yes! OMA / SGA is Office of Metropolitan Architecture and Studio Gang Architects!
