Burnham Swedenborg Borg Borg, Epstein's Damore and John Buck - additions to October calendar

OK, I knew we'd have more to add to October calendar. I just didn't think it would be this quickly. At 5:30 p.m., Monday, October 19th, Michael Damore, Executive Managing Director of Epstein (sorry, we don't do all caps here) will talk about Architects and the Future of the Profession, at the Hafele America Chicago showroom. At 7:30 a.m. on Monday, October 28th, Thomas Corfman of Crain's Chicago Business will interview developer John Buck. On Thursday, October 29th, beginning with a 7:45 a.m registration, ULI Chicago will present a panel tackling the subject The State of the Chicago Hotel Market and Its Reflection of Economic Conditions at Wit, the hotel, which just got a great write-up in the Sunday New York Times.

This week, Daniel Burnham scholar Kristen Schaffer will mini-barnstorm her lecture, Finding Burnham in the Archives: Swedenborgian Revelations and the Plan of Chicag0, Thursday the 8th at noon at Crown Hall, IIT, and again Sunday the 11th at 3:00 p.m., at Fisk Hall at Northwestern in Evanston. Read our own take on the subject here.

Although Schaffer has been giving this lecture since 2005, the version she gave this past March at the Art Institute gave the impression she was still trying to get her hands around this fascinating topic, but her thought has surely continued to evolve.

Check out all the great events - now at 80+ and counting - on the October calendar - here.

Epstein is not spelled in all caps, so no worries!
