Not longer after we published our post below updating the November Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events, we received more information about the Archi-Salon being held this Saturday in conjunction with the Art Institute's exhibition: Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects.

The salon, Inside Out: Uncovering Possibilities from within the Discipline will look "into the new possibilities generated by approaching and exploring aspects of the architectural discipline from new and uncompromised perspectives [and] uncovering possibilities related to issues of context, materiality, space, and program in architecture."

The moderator will be Iker Gil, director, MAS studio, and editor in chief, MAS Context.  Panelists are scheduled to include Jeanne Gang, principal, Studio Gang Architects; Matthias Hollwich, co-founder, Hollwich Kushner (HWKN); and Michel Rojkind, founder, Rojkind Arquitectos. Respondents will include Kelly Bair, principal, Central Standard Office of Design; assistant professor, UIC; Julie Flohr, founder, Oisse Architects; clinical assistant professor, UIC; Grant Gibson, principal, CAMES/gibson; clinical assistant professor, UIC; Thomas Jacobs, principal, Krueck + Sexton; adjunct associate professor, IIT and Mary Pat Mattson, studio assistant professor, IIT.

The event will take place this Saturday, November 17th, in the Modern Wing architecture space, Galleries 283-285, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., and is free with museum admission.  More information here.
