Chicago Summer School
June 13 @ 8:00 am - June 19 @ 5:00 pm
The Chicago Summer School focuses on the American roots of Modernism. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, progressive architects and patrons moved the city to the forefront of technological and aesthetic experimentation. Through expert lectures and tours, course directors Tina Strauss ad John Waters lead a survey of 19th and early 20th century architecture, design, art, landscape and preservation.
