For the neighborhood architect buffs, looks like the Chicago Architecture Foundation is holding an event tomorrow that sounds interesting (via Curbed):
Dubbed “Current Projects: New Skyscrapers on the Park,” the evening lecture will provide a unique opportunity to hear architects and developers share both their designs and inspirations for some of Chicago’s most anticipated projects. Among the expert panelists will be Chan-li Lin of Viñoly Architects. Mr. Lin serves as project director of the 76-story One Grant Park tower that is currently under construction at the corner of Roosevelt and Indiana.
This event is open to the public and is scheduled for Thursday, February 9th at 6:00 PM at the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s lecture space at 224. Michigan Avenue. Standard tickets for the lecture are now available online for $15 with discounted rates provided to students and CAF members.
