Thom Mayne and CAC Water Tanks Competition winners tonight at Art Institute

The Chicago Architectural Club will be holding the awards ceremony for its Chicago Prize 2005 Water Tanks competition tonight at the Art Institute. Entries will be on display in the Louis Sullivan trading room beginning at 5:30 P.M., and the program itself will begin in the Rubloff auditorium at 6:00 P.M., ending with a lecture by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis, who chaired the competition's jury. The competition "challenges entrants to salvage a part of Chicago's urban fabric, the industrial water tank, through creative reuse and preservation." In a demonstration of it's unique acoustical properties, Mr. Mayne will give his address from within a vintage water tank reconstructed on the Rubloff stage. (or maybe not)
