Archi-treasures Jewels in July, Chicago Bridges, RAW humor, Griffin, Koo and Saldaña Natke - more great stuff still to come on the July Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events

Yeah, I know, it's the 18th, so we're a little late, but a lot of things shut down for the summer, including, apparently, myself.

In any event, there's still nearly a dozen and a half great architecture-related events to come on the July Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events, headlined by this Wednesday's, July 20th, Jewels in July, at the Adobo Grill, Archi-treasures' annual benefit supporting their work bringing together architects, landscapes architects and community builders with non-profits who need their services.

The rest of July begins tonight, with James S. Phillips talking about The Evolution of the Chicago Bridge: A Brief History in Four Acts, at the Häfele America Chicago Showroom. RAW humor will be the subject of AIA Chicago Young Architects Forum event on Tuesday, the 19th.  AIA Chicago also has a session on Glass Reinforced Concrete on Thursday, the 24th, as well as no fewer than four more events on Tuesday, the 27th.  On Thursday the 28th, SEAOI's SEPAC cocktail party will offer great views from the Cliff Dwellers Club and an Engineers Discussion of the recent Japanese earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear plant.  Also on Thursday the 28th, at Pearlstein Hall at IIT, there's 3 Architects | 3 Different Approaches, a panel moderated by Roberta Feldman with architects Dina Griffin, Jackie Koo and Patricia Saldaña Natke.

And there's more!  Check all all the great events - air conditioning included! -  still to come on the July Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
