We've just been given the topic for what sounds like a fascinating lecture by Jean-Louis Cohen's at Crown Hall at 6:00 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, the 14th): Dark Times, White Spots: Architecture at War 1940:1945. If you can't make it to Crown Hall, you can also catch Cohen tomorrow at the Graham talking about The Russian Avant-Garde between East and West, part of what we've already written is a logjam of events Thursday the 15th including, but far from limited to, Karen Kice's gallery talk at Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects at the Art Institute, and the unveiling of the winners of the Future Prentice competition at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
And if that's not enough, we've also been reminded that tomorrow at 6:30 at the Superior Street driveway of Ann and Robert H.Lurie Children's Hospital, artist Mark Davis will be on hand along with Michael Pucker and other donors and dignitaries to official dedicate his new sculptureHealing Waters.
. . . writings on architecture have appeared in the Chicago Reader, Metropolis Magazine, the Harvard Design Magazine, and the backs of discarded gum wrappers.
