We wrote on Friday about the new documentary, Jeanne Gang: The Sky's the Limit, and now we've learned of another chance to catch this striking, 14 minute production.  Chicago Tonight on WTTW will be screening it on this Monday's edition - the current estimate for the segment is sometime after 7:30 p.m., but you may want to check in at the beginning of the program at 7:00 p.m. to be sure.

And, amazingly enough, we also have a entire slew (or "slaugh" for our Gaelic speaking readers) of new additions to this month's calendar. I'm too lazy to provide all the links here, but you can get the full details on everything on the November Calendar of Chicago Architectural events.

On Monday, the 14th, Urban Activators opens a new exhibition taken by young people who were taught photography techniques and sent out to document their Bronzeville neighborhood.  On Wednesday, the 16th, there'll be a networking event and panel on Biomimicry: Designing from Nature's Innovations at the Jefferson Tap & Grill, while on Thursday the 17th over at the Graham, artist Karthik Pandian will be presenting Late Culture in the American Bottom, reflecting on his 16mm films and sculptural exhibitions produced out of his research at the pre-Columbian Cahokia Mounds in southern Illinois.

On Monday, November 21st, at the Revolution Brewery, Preservation Chicago will be holding a fundraiser to help save the 1899 Brand Brewing Administration building.
On Tuesday the 29th,  the UIC School of Architecture's Judith DeJong will be discussing New (Sub)Urbanisms at the Great Cities Institute.

Believe it or not, halfway into the month, there are still over 30 great events still come, including two dozen just this week, with Stanley Tigerman, Roger Sherman, Ezio Manzini and The Lost Panoramas at separate events on Monday, Tom Jacobs of Krueck + Sexton discussing their new Net Zero Office Building in Florida at the CCGT on Tuesday, Terry Tatum talking about Irving Pond at the Glessner on Wednesday.  On Thursday, Dennis McClendon lecturing on Chicago's Moveable Bridges at the Chicago Cultural Center for Landmarks Illinois, while Jeanne Gang discusses her new book on the Chicago River, Reverse Effect, with Henry Henderson of the Natural Resources Defense Council at the Harold Washington Library.

This afternoon (Sunday), there's a discussion of Islamic Architecture by Ellen Bailey Dickson at the Glenview Ismaili Jamatkhana, and a lecture by Dale Gyure on the work of architect Minoru Yamasaki at the North Shore Congregation Israel.

So little time, so much to do.  Check out the November Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
