  • Hosting an Olympics is an empowering opportunity for a city. Witness the recent transformation of Beijing's architectural landscape. Or the complete rebirth of Barcelona and revitalization of Atlanta. Chicago, host of Coverings 2009, is aggressively competing for the 2016 games. This session, moderated by Metropolis magazine's editor-in-chief Susan Szenasy, will feature some of the people who've experienced first-hand the preparation and planning for a host city. And, while they will help give perspective on both the positives and negatives of the games on a city's evolution, they also will help connect the dots to the opportunities for design, construction and use of tile and stone as stadia and arenas are erected, housing and hospitality venues are built, and the infrastructure of the community is enlarged and improved.
