Thursday, November 2, 5:30pm
1100 Architecture + Design Studios
Kong Von Glinow joins us for a lecture, followed by a conversation with Visiting Assistant Professor Spencer McNeil.
Kwong Von Glinow is an architecture practice based in Chicago founded on the belief that architecture is meant to be enjoyed. The practice builds the thoroughly enjoyable from the slightly familiar. Kwong Von Glinow’s work translates forward-looking architectural concepts into designs with broad appeal, taking an optimistic and explorative approach.The studio's projects are based on clear ideas and compelling ideals with architectural intentions that are simple yet powerful and transformative. The practice takes on projects of varying programs to design innovative living environments, places for cultural engagement, innovative academic and institutional settings, contemporary workspaces, and not least urban public spaces.
The UIC School of Architecture lecture series is free and open to the public.
