Chicago Architecture Foundation docent Nancy Cook and tour director reminds us that this year's Emerging Chicago Architecture tour is coming up on October 6th. It's a great opportunity to not only see some of Chicago's best new buildings, but also actually have the architects on hand to talk to you about them.
This year's event will begin at CAF, with a talk by Stanley Tigerman before setting forth for a tour of his new building for the Pacific Garden Mission, followed by stops at Rancho Verde/Christy Webber with architect Doug Farr, and a stop at the Center on Halsted with Gensler's Elva Rubio. A walkaround of Helmut Jahn's new SRO on Clybourn, sans architect, and projects by Miller/Hull and LCM Architects finish up the 4-hour event.
For a highly reasonable 45 bucks ($40.00 for CAF members) you can guaranteee yourself a spot on the bus. (Bring your own sack lunch, and purchase your reservation on-line at the CAF's website, via Ticketmaster, complete with that monopoly's accustomed unreasonable service charge, in this case $5.75.)
