national convention rolls into Chicago later this week, and in addition to an almost overwhelming array of keynotes, talks, panels, and tours, there are any number of related events, many of which we've captured on the June Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
On Tuesday, there's Monte Chapin of Graphisoft N.A. showcasing BIMxDocs, his firm's iOS app, Lira Luis presents “fringe ideas for rebuilding after a disaster”, and Zoological Lighting Institute founder James Karl Fischer talks about “photobiology and nocturnal habitats.” The series concludes on Wednesday, with Jimenz Lai, IDEO Chicago's Sara Frisk, and “design scientist and futurist” Melissa Sterry speculating on “how nature would design a city.”
Sterry will also be giving an RIBA-sponsored lecture at the Doubletree on Thursday, Learning from Life: The Biologically Informed City, the same night there's a special AIA Convention Design+Dining Pecha Kucha at Martyr's, with the participants including Linda Keane, Petra Bachmaier, Catherine di napoli, Jonathan Parker, architects Miguel Del Rio, Carl Sergio and Dan Wheeler, SOM's Eric Keune and Michael Pfeffer and Architectural Record Senior Editor Joann Gonchar, with Peter Exley as MC.
Friday, AIADIV and Chicago Women in Architecture is sponsoring a Global Inclusion Reception at the Hafele Chicago Showroom with Ambassador (Ret) John F. Maisto.
