K+S architect Don Semple has recently received recognition for his pro bono work on The Logan Square Bicentennial Improvements Project with a spread feature in Architect’s Newspaper. The project’s overarching goal is to create a safer more people-friendly space for the square through changes to the CTA bus infrastructure and to the square itself. Completed with extensive community input, Don and his partners Charlie Keel and Ryan Westrom, a traffic engineer, propose improvements to the green space around Logan Square to make it more usable in support of the neighborhood’s pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Changes will be made to the roadways that improve the efficiency of auto and bus traffic while decreasing the amount of asphalt surface area around the site. These changes will allow for more effective parking at the square and will make unprecedented strides towards sustainable storm water management.
