    Tonight at Crown Hall:


    Join us, The Mies van der Rohe Society, as we toast Mies as well as great new architecture in Chicago as seen through fashion!

    Then tomorrow, March 26, to benefit Unity Temple in its 100th year:

    Paul Goldberger :: Frank Lloyd Wright, Sacred Space, and the Challenge of the Modern.



    Is there a conflict between the desire to express a modern idea and the timelessness we expect of sacred space?

    Thu :: Mar 26 :: 7:30pm. Paul Goldberger, award-winning architecture critic of The New Yorker, will look at Unity Temple in the context of history’s great religious spaces. He will explore the connection between architecture and the spiritual and consider its meaning, both for Frank Lloyd Wright and for the architecture of today.

    Goldberger has written about architecture, design and urbanism for The New Yorker since 1997 (his most recent column focused on Chicago's Burnham Plan Centennial). He began his career at The New York Times, where he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism, the highest award in journalism. $15 members of Unity Temple Restoration Foundation / $20 nonmembers. Purchase tickets.
