The color palette for the entry wall is taken from a NASA satellite image of Chicago at night: everything is a glow in tans, browns, and golds.

The underlying grid for the entry wall is based on Chicago's primary street grid.

Inspiration

<a href="http://www.aaronkoblin.com/work/flightpatterns/" target="_blank">Flight Patterns</a> by Aaron Koblin

Data artist Aaron Koblin visualized real-time FAA data of flights from different regions around the world, which helped mark a seminal moment in "data as design."

As artists, we were inspired by how the map of the world can be recognized simply by tracing a straight line between every airport on the planet.

We recognize ourselves through our connections.
