Chicago’s cityscape is renowned for its innovative designs and construction techniques.
This event showcases the recent anthology Chicagoisms: The City as Catalyst for Urban Speculation, which unveils Chicago’s unique architectural history. Chicagoisms understands architecture not only as a product of Chicago’s culture, but also as a player in developing it. It defines architecture as a practice of identifying and deploying conceptual, visual, structural, behavioral, and material patterns in the world.
Following a presentation of the book by the editors (Alexander Eisenschmidt and Jonathan Mekinda), a panelist of architects. For a list of confirmed participants, please contact Alexander Eisenschmidt via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is presented by the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago as part of The Collaborative City, a program of the Illinois Humanities Council, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE).
