Harry Weese, How Chicago Are You?, An Evening with Louis Sullivan, Planning and the Two Mayor Daley's: The May Architectural Calendar Rampages on!
Well, we're . . . . just . . . . beginning!
Even with the Memorial Day holiday, there are still over 30 great events still to come in the
May Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events, beginning with the final two festival screenings at the Siskel on Monday, covering Norman Foster and Aaron Betsky.
The big event of the month is Saturday's day-long symposium, Harry Weese Reconsidered, at CAF, who which, as today, there are still tickets. (Sunday's bus tour of Weese's Chicago's buildings with Bob Bruegmann is sold out.). On Friday the 13th, Ward Miller will sign copies of the great new book, The Complete Architecture of Adler & Sullivan at a benefit for Preservation Chicago at Sullivan's last commission, the Krause Music Store, now Studio V. Design.
Want more? There's this year's edition of CANstruction, Jonathan Muecke at the Graham, Tim Witman on Henry Hobbs Richardson in the Landscape, at the Glessner House, Elisabeth Logman on the K-Town Historic District in North Lawndale for Landmarks Illinois at the Cultural Center.
Those are just some of the highlights, and we haven't even gotten to the Festival of the Architecture Book yet. Check out great shows and over thirty events still to come on the May 2011 Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
