The Daley Plaza is a great area faor Chicagoans to express themselves; many use it to fight back against what they believe as oppression or as freedom of speech to support their beliefs. The plaza is chosen because of its location close to Cith Hall. The area allows people in large groups to gather and show their support. The area was founded by the first Mayor Daley and was originally known as the Chicago Civic Center. Located in the heart of the Chicago Loop, the Daley Center was Chicago's first major public building to be constructed in a modern rather than a classical architectural style. The center of Daley Plaza has an unnamed statue made by Pablo Picasso.
