Imagine four similar interior spaces treated in four unique ways.
In an exclusive tour of 860-880 North Lake Shore Drive Apartments on September 20, 2011, the Mies Society will offer a sneak peek at contemporary design within a Mies context. Architect Robert Kleinschmidt has organized a tour of four homes within the building, each of which were renovated in the past two years and never before open to the public.
“Each one has been designed by a talented architect,” Kleinschmidt says. “All of their design solutions are in the modern idiom. Each take the Miesian philosophy and interpret it in a different way.”
The four homes feature the latest technologies and newest materials. Tickets for this events are $250 for members and $300 for nonmembers. Proceeds go toward the restoration of Carr Memorial Chapel, Mies’s only religious building, at Illinois Institute of Technology. The current phase of the Chapel’s restoration will be completed September 1, 2011 with Mies Society members’ funding. A final phase is yet to be completed.
Reservations are required by Monday, September 12, 2011. R.S.V.P. with credit card payment to 312.567.5042 or at www.miessociety.org/happenings. Meet in the 880 lobby.
