Now up for this month: The Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events

April Fool! (you don't think we'd ever get one of these things up on time, do you?)

To quote Don Corleone, one day, and that day may never come, we'll be posting the April calendar.  For now, just a reminder that:

TONIGHT: there'll be a a launch party for Reveal, Studio/Gang's superb new monograph of their work, which includes an interview I did with uber-developer and Aqua patron James Loewenberg.  It's  at the Stop Smiling Storefront, 1371 N. Milwaukee, Friday, April 1st, from 7:00 p.m., on, kicking off with a 30 minute interview of architect Jeanne Gang, a book signing (books will sold at discount), and a "DJ's after-party til the wee hours". 

other events for this Friday:

History of Seepage
1:00 p.m., Erikson Institute, 451 North Lasalle
- a special demonstration by Professor Ira Saum√Ętre of the University of Illinois, Sauk Village,  designed for both architects and consumers ages 4 and up, delivered through case history videos, product demonstrations, and hand puppets. 

First Fridays Happy Hour
6:00 p.m., Arrigo and Sons Funeral Home, 5670 West Addison
This month young architects volunteer to cheer up surprised mourners with vodka stingers and funny anecdotes about Peter Zumthor.

Parametricism on Ice

Showing a previously unsuspected athleticism,  Patrik Schumacher leads skaters from the Smuckers Stars 2011 Tour in demonstrating through computer-generated choreography the universality of parametricism  and the futility of resistance.
