Come out on your lunch hour to the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s free lunch lecture series to hear Philip Castillo, partner and executive vice president of Murphy/Jahn Architects, discuss the design and use of the University of Chicago’s new Joe and Rika Mansueto Library today from 12:15pm-1:00pm at the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Lecture Hall Gallery, 224 S. Michigan Ave., as part of CAF’s free lunch lecture series. Design is always a marriage between vision and realities. Essentially a storage facility for books, the impact of the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library on the campus and its users has to go far beyond this pragmatic purpose. The vision is to make the building an integral part of the existing library and the campus, giving it and its spaces a unique and iconic character.
Designed with your busy schedule in mind, our popular drop-in lunchtime lectures provide a wonderful opportunity to engage in a variety of topics that relate to Chicago’s architecture and built environment—from recent research in architectural history to current projects around the Chicagoland area. Programs are only 45 minutes in length, and you are welcome to bring your lunch. Held every Wednesday, there are plenty of topics to learn about featuring an impressive line-up of speakers.
TIME 12:15–1pm – June 15
