Friday afternoon will be your last chance to take in Boom Towns!. Chicago Architects Design New Worlds, the exhibition I guest curated at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, 224 South Michigan. It compares projects of Chicago architects in today's booms towns in the Middle East and China with counterparts in Chicago's own era as a boom town in the 19th century. Despite my own participation, it turned out to be a compelling and entertaining show, with great stories, models, and a lot of striking period and contemporary images of some of the most iconic architectural projects of the last century and a quarter. You can read more about the exhibition in my previous post here. And don't forgot to check out Iker Gil's great exhibition Shanghai Transforming, in CAF's John Buck Gallery, where it runs through January 9.
