One more for November: Empathy, Storytelling and Prototyping at Archeworks, plus for December: Northerly Island plans unveiled; max Sennett

In what I predict with some confidence will be the last addition to the November calendar of Chicago Architectural events, next Tuesday, November 30th, Archeworks will be presenting a program, on Empathy, Storytelling, and Prototyping: 3 stories + 1 conversation, with the storytellers including Adam Goss of Spirit of Space, Chris Force of Design Bureau/ALARM Press and Martin Thaler from the IIT Institute of Design.  Earlier in the day, AIA Chicago will be sponsoring a talk by John Vinci and Ward Miller about their new book, The Complete Architecture of Adler and Sullivan.  There are three events - count 'em: three! - still to come in November.  Check them out here.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, December the 2nd, The Chicago Park District, Gia Biagi, Jeanne Gang from Studio/Gang/Architects and JJR will present plans for Northerly Island.  At noontime that same day, Lawrence Okrent will be presenting The History of Grant Park at the Chicago Architecture Foundation. And the very same famed sociologist Richard Sennett who will be speaking at the Graham on the 2nd becomes a recidivist lecturer with a second event sponsored by the School of the Art Institute at Columbus Auditorium on the 6th.

Check out all the events on the rapidly evolving December calendar here.
