March 22 is World Water Day, where all human beings are invited to learn more about water-related issues, get inspired and make a positive impact. The international event dates back to 1992 when the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development made a recommendation: Thereafter, in 1993, 22 March was established as World Water Day. UN-Water sets the theme each year, and for 2017, it’s about wastewater.

“We are wasting our water mostly by putting waste into it. One cubic meter of wastewater can pollute ten cubic meters of water.” – Rose George Read more

CHICAGO – Having opened its doors in Chicago on Feb. 13, the 150 North Riverside Plaza has unveiled the 150 Media Stream, a digital art installation unlike anything in the United States.

The lobby of Riverside Investment & Development (Riverside)’s stunning, 53-story office tower designed by architect Goettsch Partners will serve as 150 Media Stream’s permanent home. A transit-oriented development located alongside the Chicago River in the West Loop, the award-winning project’s flagship tenants include the global headquarters of renowned investment bank William Blair and Company, iconic hotelier Hyatt Corporation, Navigant Consulting, as well as the Chicago office of Kansas City-based law firm Polsinelli. The project also includes a dynamic restaurant concept by Four Corners Tavern Group and restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff.

Commissioned by Riverside and curated by Creative Director Yuge Zhou, 150 Media Stream’s display concept and physical structure were designed by McCann Systems in cooperation with media firm Digital Kitchen. McCann Systems then led the design-build process, with specialized creative agency Leviathan engaged to produce the initial artistic content. Read more
