Chicago is a city that's constantly in flux, continuously changing in ways both big and small that will shape the lives of residents for years to come. We can't predict exactly what tomorrow will bring, but we can examine the innovative people, places and things working toward a better future for Chicago.
Over the past few months, we've seen change accelerate in ways that we couldn't imagine. Chicago's best restaurants have been forced to rethink how they do business, Chicago music venues have taken concerts online and drive-in movie theaters have become some of the most popular destinations in town.
Some of these innovations may not be permanent, but the disruption to city life as we've come to know it offers a chance to rewrite the rules and create lasting change. As we take stock and look forward, we've gathered some of the most exciting people, places and things that are creating a better Chicago today, tomorrow and beyond.
