Thomas A. Kligerman: The New Shingled House

Thursday, September 7, 2017, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Chicago-Midwest Chapter of the ICAA, the AIA/Chicago Area CRAN, and Pella Crafted Luxury are pleased to welcome Thomas A. Kligerman. Tom was raised in Connecticut and New Mexico, and spent years in France and England as a student. These experiences sparked his interest in the rich history of domestic architecture, gardens, and landscapes. Before co-founding Ike Kligerman Barkley, Tom worked for Robert A. M. Stern Architects and received his Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University and his Master of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture.

He is passionate about the design process, and loves studying and creating architectural models. He serves on the boards of a number of charitable and educational institutions, including his current role as the President of the Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation.  

Tom will talk about the lasting appeal of the shingle style house, the work of his firm, and the cultural influences of architecture from his travels to Cuba, Italy, and beyond. After his lecture at the Pella Crafted Luxury showroom he will sign copies of his book, The New Shingled House.    

Cost/Reservations: Free. RSVP Required. 

Location: Pella Crafted Luxury, 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 100, Chicago, IL
