The iSpace Gallery on Franklin is dead (moment of silence), so the Chicago Architectural Club is moving it's Tuesday, February 23rd event, Tristan d’Estree Sterk and Douglas Pancoast - The Quiet War: Architecture and Digital Technologies, to the Flatiron Building at Milwaukee, Damen and North. "Long ago a quiet war sent the deepest core of western beliefs into battle with the natural world." Has a sort of Lord of the Rings ring to it, no? Will there be droids? Reception at 6:00 p.m, program at 6:30.
Two nights later -Thursday, February 25th, 6:00 p.m., reception, 7:00 p.m, program, at the historic Second Presbyterian Church on south Michigan, art historian Ruth D.
