From an email sent to Argyle-Winmore Block Club Members:
"I would like to check back in with you on regarding the gateway element and decorative pavers for the Argyle CTA Station. While we have had much discussion about the gateway element (above), we are looking for some feedback from you, the Alderman, and the community on the decorative paving pattern (below) that will be on both sides of Argyle Street beneath the CTA viaduct. I have attached the final image of the gateway element, as well as our current concept of the paver pattern. Because of the strong and vibrant identity in the gateway design, we wanted the paver pattern to complement -- and not distract from -- the gateway itself. We choose coordinating colors, and took the theme of colored bands with varied widths from the support columns of the identifier. Please let me know any feedback or suggested design changes as soon as you are able (within one week if possible!) and we can incorporate any of your comments into the final design."
