This floating garden project will be able to revitalize the urban landscape of Chicago in many different ways.

The proposal is one that hopes to bring some green space to the Chicago river in the form of four, 150-foot installments of plant life. The floating gardens will function as habitats for animals and will likely increase their population in the area. They will also work to clean up the area and function as a vibrant tourist attraction, while creating opportunities for people in STEAM fields. The floating garden project also hopes to inspire and influence others of its kind around the world.

This urban eco project is a small feature in the important movement towards protecting and creating green spaces as part of the fight against climate change.
