Nine Responses to the Available City panel discussion – Nov 24
On Tuesday, November 24, Iker Gil will moderate a panel discussion with architects whose work appears in the Chicago Architecture Biennial exhibition BOLD: Alternative Scenarios for Chicago. For this event, the speakers will be 3D Design Studio, Ania Jaworska, Central Standard Office of Design, Jahn, JGMA, Krueck+Sexton, Landon Bone Baker, Margaret McCurry and Stanley Tigerman. Building upon the guidelines outlined in David Brown’s “The Available City” project, each firm was commissioned to interpret these rules and generate new architectural scenarios. During this event, members of each team will discuss their proposals, focusing on the specific issues that the projects address and the possibilities they generate.
Organized by architect Iker Gil, BOLD showcases speculative projects and ideas for the city of Chicago. Although generated without a client, the projects operate with an awareness of the constraints and realities of Chicago, and with the intention to engage with public and private agencies to shape the future of the city.
The event is free and will take place at the Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (CDT). To attend, please RSVP here.
