SEAOI Awards presentations, Bachrach's Garden, Wolner's Henry Cobb, Gene Summers memorial - May begins!

It's the first of the month - time for me to start working on the May 2012 Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.

We've got quite a bit for this week so far.  Among the highlights: Today, Tuesday, May 1, the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois is holding Final Presentations for its 2012 Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards at Pazzo's.  On Wednesday the 2nd, Julia Bachrach talks about the new edition of her book, The City in a Garden: A History of Chicago's Parks, at CAF lunchtime, while later in the day at AIA/Chicago, Andrew Sedgewick of Arup London discusses Current Trends in Museum Design

Thursday, the 3rd, John Quail discusses the Chicago River for Friends of Downtown lunchtime at the Cultural Center, while over at Charley-Persky House, Ted Wolner talks for SAH about his great book, Henry Cobb's Chicago.  At IIT,  Friday, the 4th is the Annual Student Work Exhibition, while on Saturday, there's a memorial celebrating "the life and legacy of architect, design, sculptor, painter, education and entrepreneur Gene Summers."
We still have a ways to go, but you can check out the two dozen great items already on the May 2012 Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.  100% proof-reading free!

Question? the photo of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Building expansion. We assisted Walsh construction in several aspects of the construction, crane installation and splicing procedures. We would be interested in a high resolution of the photo if possible. Please advise :
