Tod Williams and Billie Tsein
Join us as Tod Williams, FAIA and Billie Tsein, AIA speak on their architectural philosophy and design process.
Tod Williams and Billlie Tsein believe "architecture is the coming together of art and use." Their New York studio focuses on work for institutions including schools, museums, and not-for profit projects, with their newest commission, the Obama Presidential Center, being intergrated into Chicago's historic Jackson Park in 2021. They will discuss what influenced past projects and their journey through their distinguished career.
Over the past three decades Williams and Tsein have received more than two dozen awards including the National Medal of the Arts from President Obama, Firm of the Year Award from the American Insitute of Architects, and most recently the 2017 AIA Insitute Honor Award for Architecture featuring the Logan Center for the Arts. Both have been inducted to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Tickets are $20 and all proceeds will be given to the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
Wine, beer and refreshments will be provided. Space is limited, please RSVP below.
This lecture is co-sponosored by AIA Chicago (American Institute of Architects).
We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event
