Change - CAC event Wednesday night now a Model Program - members only

There's been a change in the program for tomorrow's (Wednesday, February 20th) Chicago Architectural Club event. It's now the second of a series of roundtable discussions, for members and "those wishing to become members" only.

It will feature architects Martin Felsen, Julie Flohr and Eric Ellingsen reflecting on "on the increasing use of models developed for disciplines not traditionally associated with the field of architecture. At the same time architects are employing these models in increasingly rigorous ways, they are transforming the role of the models from appropriated images to adopted processes. We will discuss: How do these shifts fit into the development of new technologies in modeling, both in contemporary and historical terms? How do the changing attitudes towards physical models affect changing attitudes towards theoretical models? How do models bridge gaps between disciplines?" It begins at 6:30 P.M. at the I-Space Gallery,
