Please join us as we kick off our Welcome Back First Wednesday program with Kenilworth Union Church member Laurie Petersen’s richly illustrated lecture about The Latest and Greatest in Chicago Architecture.

Laurie is the editor of the latest edition of the AIA Guide to Chicago, the most comprehensive guide to the city’s architecture. She will show us dozens of examples of exciting developments all over the city, from stunning new skyscrapers to restored gems. If you’ve been wondering about new buildings on the skyline or want suggestions of fun neighborhoods to walk around, you’ll enjoy this lively presentation.

Recent interviews with Laurie include David Roeder from the Chicago Sun Times: Architectural guide captures Chicago’s beauty and breadth and Terrell Brown from ABC Chicago News: History Behind the Buildings.
