Plan of Chicago+100, CHF panel, noon today, at the Harris

We'll have a larger blurb later, but the November calendar, with over 50 architecture-related events, is up, and it's pretty heavily front-loaded with items, included a number of Chicago Humanities Festival events this weekend and next.

Several are already sold out, but today, Sunday, November 2 at noon, there's a panel at the Harris Theatre, The Plan Of Chicago: 100 Years of City-Building, with Carl Smith, Paul O'Connor, Gerald Adelmann and Jeanne Gang, moderated by Lee Bey. At 2:30 P.M. - same location, there's another panel, The Global City of the Future, with Saskia Sassen, Richard Burdett, and SOM's Phil Enquist, moderated by Adele Simmons, vice-chair of the Burnham Plan Centennial Committee.

Next Saturday, it's The GO TO 2040 Plan: Bold Innovations for a Better Chicago, 10:00 A.M., and at 2:30, Offshoring Audacity, with Joseph Grima, Jeffrey Inaba, Sam Jacob and Geoff Manaugh, both at the Chicago History Museum. Sunday at Noon at DePaul's Merle Reskin Theatre, Bruce Mau and Elva Rubio: Designing Chicago's Next Century will present the project they've created with SAIC and UIC students to "radically re-envision the future of Chicago's built environment: a Burnham plan for the next century."
