Spend a Saturday evening with wine, hors d’oeuvres and informal tours of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Robie House.
What do Mies van der Rohe, IKEA furniture, and robots have in common? Find out when Justine Jentes, director of the Mies van der Rohe Society, leads a conversation about Crown Hall, which this summer boasts two exhibitions on the theme of memory: Jeff Carter’s scale models of the demolished Walter Gropius buildings at Michael Reese Hospital constructed with IKEA furniture, and a series of twelve interactive scenes created by Chicago Robotic Theatre telling a story about memory. Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Robie House will serve as the venue for this exploration of Modernism through the decades.
