International perspectives on Chicago and the future of urban change

28.09.2015 - Events

The Art Institute of Chicago, the Architecture & Design Society, Van Alen Institute’s International Council and the Chicago Architecture Biennial have invited Francine Houben for a conversation between international architects and urban thinkers on the challenges and rewards of living in today’s metropolitan areas. The event is part of the partner programme of the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Francine Houben is one of a diverse group of architects, planners, academics, and city officials that will provide local and global perspectives on the past, present, and future of Chicago architecture and planning. Reflecting on the biggest challenges Chicago and the Midwest face in the coming years, they’ll exchange ideas on issues ranging from new typologies for vertical urban living to the future of suburbia. The free event takes place on Thursday October 1, from 5 to 8pm and is moderated by Zoë Ryan (Art Institute of Chicago), Kai-Uwe Bergmann (BIG), and David van der Leer (Van Alen Institute).
