Aqua, MOMO, Price, Burnham, Dongtan and More on January Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events
Jeanne Gang talks about Aqua, Charles Stetson of Booth Hansen talks about MOMO. Daniel Burnham gets a double dip - Charles Smith discusses his new book on the Burnham Plan at a Preservation Snapshots lecture at the Cultural Center while Judith McBrien heads to Archeworks to discuss Archimedia's upcoming documentary series on the legendary Chicago architect and planner. The Gene Siskel Film Centre offers up movies on Santiago Calatrava's pre-Chicago twist in Malmo, Sweden, Norman Foster's London Gherkin, and Teshigahara's mesmerizing look at the work of Antonio Gaudi. Zola Zola discusses her zoning plan for 21st Century Chicago at AIA Chicago. Anthony Alofsin lectures at the opening of a new CAF exhibition on Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower. Gary Lawrence of ARUP discusses Dongtan, a new "eco-city" outside of Shanghai, China at both AIA and at a CAF lunchtime lecture.
That and much, much more (Looptopia!) on the January Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events - check it all out here.
