This Saturday, November 9, School of Architecture faculty Kelly Bair, Judith De Jong, and Dan Wheeler will participate in “Tracing/Traces: Architecture and the Archive,” an event organized by MAS Context at the Art Institute of Chicago in association with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. The event asks a group of architects to select three objects from the Art Institute’s archival collections and discuss their relevance to their practices, the discipline, and society.
“Tracing/Traces” takes place at 11am in the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries. It is free with museum admission, but registration is required.
