Several campus buildings part of first Open House Chicago architecture event
The University of Chicago will participate in the first annual Open House Chicago event, featuring more than 100 sites of architectural interest in 15 communities throughout Chicago.
The Chicago Architectural Foundation created the event to foster an understanding of how architecture and design impact everyday life. Participants will have a rare opportunity to visit, and in some cases tour, architecturally or historically significant sites across the city.
The tour on the University campus will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 and Sunday, Oct. 16. Buildings included in the tour are: the School of Social Service Administration, the Laird Bell Law Quadrangle, the Chicago Theological Seminary (exterior, only), the Steam Power Plant (exterior, only), and the South Campus Chiller Plant.
Questions about the tours may be directed to Dan Larson, Client Services Assistant Manager, Facilities Services, at (773) 255-6966. This notice also appears on the Facilities Services website and Facebook.
