Bradford Hunt and Jon B. DeVries, and in the evening there's another panel at DePaul Center on Chicago's New Eastside.

On Thursday, the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois is sponsoring its tenth annual Midwest Bridge Symposium at Maggiano's, while on Friday new IIT Dean of Architecture Dean Wiel Arets is at the Graham Foundation, and Saturday is both Rebuild Together - Working Together Day, and a lecture by Argonne Lab's Don Hillebrand on Chicago: A Leader in Energy and Technology Breakthroughs at Francis Parker.

39th Annual Wright Plus Architectural Housewalk.
 We also learned last week that as of today, there are still tickets available for this usually sold-out annual event.  This year's edition takes place Saturday May 18th, and offers rare interior tours of nine private homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, including the 1913 Harry S. Adams House, and such contemporaries as John S. Bergen, plus three other landmark FLW buildings.  Tickets - $85.00 for Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust members, $100.00 for non-members - can be purchased on-line. More information here.
