    OUR MISSION THE CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE CENTER INSPIRES PEOPLE TO DISCOVER WHY DESIGN MATTERS.

    CONTENTSDEAR MEMBERS Our visibility has skyrocketed since the opening of the new Chicago Architecture Center. The January pop-up exhibit of architectural models proposed by fi ve teams in the running to design O’Hare’s new Global Terminal is an example of our enlarged civic role.

    By bringing our tours, exhibits, education and public programs under one roof, we have created Chicago’s home for all things architecture. Our new exhibits in the Chicago Gallery and the Drake Family Skyscraper Gallery engage visitors from all walks of life and levels of expertise. Everyone from CPS students, to out-of-town travelers, to design devotees, to established architects from around the world can learn something new at the CAC.

    This new, cohesive “CAC experience” is getting rave reviews from Chicago civic, architecture and design organizations. In the past month, the CAC has received the “Business Impact of the Year Award” from the Magnifi cent Mile, the “Best New Attraction” award from the Friends of Downtown, and the “Richard Nickel Award” from AIA Illinois.

    As you fl ip through our new issue, you’ll see there’s something for everyone this spring. You’ll discover what’s new on the river as we launch our river cruise season. Explore our city with two new CTA Art & Architecture “L” tours, a new Magnifi cent Mile walking tour and a new season of limited edition bus tours. Celebrate the Newhouse Competition’s 37th year helping Chicago high school students become architects and designers.

    Take your pick of programs celebrating 100 years of Bauhaus and its Chicago legacy. And this April, join us for a new three-part masterclass series in the tradition of iconoclastic art historian Vincent Scully. Like Scully, who galvanized generations of architects, his student Reed Kroloff will lead us on a rediscovery of architecture’s power to provoke and inspire a richer civic and cultural life.

    Join us and discover something new at the Center!

    LYNN J. OSMOND President and CEO, Hon. AIA, CAE

    Within six months of opening, the CAC has received three signifi cant awards from civic, architecture and design groups, including “Business Impact of the Year” from the Magnifi cent Mile Association and “Best New Attraction” from Friends of Downtown.

    Most recently, on Feb. 4, American Institute of Architects (AIA) Illinois hosted its 2018 honors award reception at the CAC. Three women leaders were recognized at the event, including CAC President and CEO Lynn Osmond, who received the prestigious 2018 Richard Nickel Award. The award is given annually to citizens who lift up architecture and the profession. AIA Illinois noted Osmond’s 22 years of leadership and her role in establishing the CAC as a crowning achievement.

    Where else but Chicago can you find two iconic Mid-Century buildings living side by side? This tour compares and contrasts the sites, uses, structures, styles and philosophies.

    The word “Bauhaus” (literally “Building House" in German) is synonymous with the Modern style that conquered the world of design in the 1950s and 1960s. This style—focused on minimalism— evolved from an art school of the same name that was founded in Germany in 1919. Students studied the use of modern concepts and technology in the decorative and fine arts, and later, in architecture.

    The Nazis forced the Bauhaus to close in 1933, but many of its students and faculty fled to other countries carrying the banner of Modernism. The last Bauhaus director was architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, who moved to Chicago in 1938. Here, he created the modern skyscraper, including the building in which the CAC is housed.

    This year, the CAC is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, and its lasting legacy on the city, with several programs and tours. Come join us at one of our upcoming tours or events!
