September Architectural Calendar goes from 0 to 40 in 25 days

The September calendar of Chicago architectural events comes out of the quiet of summer with a roar, with the city's institutions firing up on all cylinders. The centerpiece is Louis Sullivan at 150, the 6 week celebration of the famed architect's birth, with tours, workshops and lectures. But wait - there's more! Bruce Mau comes to town to talk about Massive Change, his exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Daniel Coffey talks about his latest projects at CAF. At IIT, there's Piet Oudolf on landscape design, Leslie van Duzer on Adolf Loo's Muller Villa, and Carlos Ferrater about his own architecture. Chicago Bauhaus and Beyond leads a tour of Riverwoods. David Woods of the GSA speaks at a Friends of Downtown lunchtime event on what the federal government plans to do with the recently acquired block on the State Street next to the Dirksen Building. All that and, you know, much, much more - check it all out here.
