Since we never seem to get around to doing the next month's calender of architectural events until about 11:00 P.M. the previous night, we thought we'd pass along an early warning on two events early in October:
Engineers Discuss Block 37: The October dinner meeting of the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois will feature a presentation by Thorton Tomasetti, structural engineer of record for the project, including the deep basement excavation that will ultimately let the CTA's blue and red line trains cross tracks underground. The event will be held next Tuesday, October 12th, at the Cliff Dwellers, cash bar at 5:15 P.M., dinner at 6, program at 7:00, $45.00 for members, $55.00 for non-members. Make reservations by today, September 27th, by calling Donna Childs at 312/649.4600 x200. More info here.
