    Architecture: From the Skyscraper to the Riverwalk

    Chicago is the site of the first skyscraper, and the stomping grounds of Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and other pioneers. As our city celebrates the architecture biennial, CIW is showcasing Chicago as the foundation of modern architecture. Designers and architects explore Chicago’s enduring impact on the buildings, engineering marvels and cities worldwide.

    What to expect: Chicago Riverwalk designer Carol Ross Barney, Navy Pier re-design team member Sarah Astheimer and Studio Gang’s Gia Biagi discuss Chicago's future; Bill Doerge on designing to a city’s culture; Ed Purver on how lighting changes the space you’re in

    *This Talk is presented by ABC 7 Chicago.

    *Special thanks to our hosts the Evening Associates of the Art Institute of Chicago
