If I know Chicagoans—and I’ve been studying the breed for years—I figure most probably just shook their heads in dismay at the new ward map, adopted last week by the City Council.
Like—what the hell can we do?
But Andrew Bayley—a graduate student of architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology—actually did something about the new map.
He took the 50 newly created and peculiarly shaped wards and turned them into a jigsaw puzzle. It’s pretty funny to look at it, and it’s probably a blast to assemble. You can find it on his website.
