Fix on conserving outdoor sculpture (today) and Alex Lehnerer on Grand Urban Rules - two more February events

We now expect the February calendar to be completed somewhere around March 10th. Two more great events:

Today, February 10, at noon, in the SAIC ballroom at 112 S. Michigan, the appropriately named Karen J. Fix will talk about Conservation and Restoration of Outdoor Sculpture for the Historic Preservation Program of the School of the Art Institute.

Then, on Thursday, February 25th, at 6:00, the Graham Foundation will welcome Alex Lehnerer, partner in Kaisersrot, the Zurick-based collaboration of researchers in the field of architecture, urban design and computational technology, and Associate Professor at the School of Architecture, UIC, who will discuss his new book, Grand Urban Rules, "a tribute to the city's will to form, manifest in its vast number of steering regimes . . . We read cities by their rules!"
