OK, the 4th on a Wednesday has somehow morphed into a holiday weekend, so there's not much going on until next Tuesday, and after that, things heat up with new addition to the July Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
This coming Tuesday, July 9th, taking place at 6:00 p.m. at Polish Triangle on Milwaukee, Division, and Ashland and Broken Windows: Writers Examine the Human Element in Urban Design, with stories from Paul Durica, Maribel Mares and Sara Ross and an open mic (sign-up begins at 5:30 p.m.) Earlier (3:00 to 5:00 p.m., to be exact) in the same location Katherine Darnstadt of Latent Design will lead a Broken Windows Place Making Workshop. No actual windows will be harmed in either event.
Getting back to this coming week, the Chicago Center on Green Technology has a Wednesday session on Accelerating Sustainability in Chicago's 77 Community Areas, while lunchtime on Thursday the 11th John Eifler talks about (Frank Lloyd) Wright's Search for Innovation in Design at Fourth Presbyterian's Gratz Center.
Event-wise, July is really just getting started, so check out the three dozen great items to come on the July Calendar of Chicago Architectural Events.
