Jenney, Lagrange, Richardson among nearly 50 events on June Calendar of Architectural events

The Illinois Preservation Conference, SEAOI's engineering awards banquet, Lucien Lagrange discussing his work, and H.H. Richardson stories at Glessner House are all among the nearly 50 events on the June Calendar of Chicago Architecture Events. But that's not all! You also get: a rally to save the Lake Shore Athletic Club, a lecture on parking, a tour of Chicago's modernist landmarks by Rolf Achilles for docomomo, Canstruction, the work of Harley Ellis Devereaux , the Prairie Avenue housewalk, a lecture on Murphy/Jahn's new Near North Apartments SRO, Motor Row, and a entire series of events marking the occasion of the 100th anniversary of William LeBaron Jenney's death, including a symposium at the Chicago History Museum, a slew of CAF lectures, and the dedication of a new monument for Jenney's grave at Graceland cemetery. But wait! There's more! Check it all out here.
