Vinoly, Herreros, Kalach, Gang, Rosa, Harboe, the 2016 Olympics and Courtyards of Weishan and much, much more on March Calendar of Architectural Event

Spring is warming up the architectural scene in Chicago, with almost 40 items on the March calendar of architecture-related events. Rafael Vinoly will talk about his sets for the Chicago Opera Theater production of Monteverdi's The Return of Ulysses, at a March 28th CAF lunchtime lecture, Jan Herreros discusses his work at IIT, and Alberto Kalach his at UIC. At another CAF lunchtime lecture, Martin Felsen and Sarah Dunn talk about their winning entry in the History Channel's City of the Future Competition. Jeanne Gang talks about Aqua for the Friends of Downtown, and bird collisions at the Chicago Center for Green Technology. Then there's the Art Institute's Joe Rosa at Archeworks, and preservation architect Gunny Harboe at APA. Patrick Ryan and SOM's Thomas Kerwin discuss Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympics at CAF, while Vince Michael lectures on the Courtyard Houses of Weishan, China for Landmarks Illinois at the Cultural Center.

Believe it or not, that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's a ton of other great events, and I feel guilty not to mention them all here, but you can check it all out here.
