The AIANY Women in Architecture Committee has organized a fundraiser screening of the film “A Girl is a Fellow Here: 100 Women in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright.” This documentary is written and directed by Beverly Willis, FAIA, and produced by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation.

The 20-minute film unearths the experience of more than 100 female fellows at Taliesin with a focus on six individuals who have carved a place for themselves in the legacy of women in architecture.

Society of Architectural Historians, 67th Annual Conference, Austin
April 9-13, 2014
As it has since 2010, this year's Society of Architectural Historians Annual Conference is proud to feature the Graduate Student Lighting Talks. This full session is composed of 5-minute graduate student presentations that provide graduate students the opportunity to present their current research. Participants may choose to present their work in the form of a focused summation, a concentrated case study, or a methodological exegesis. This year, the Lightning Talks format, in which presentations are divided into thematic groups with question and discussion following each, will be augmented with established scholars acting as respondents.
Graduate students are invited to submit a short abstract (150 word
max.) headed with the applicant's name, institutional affiliation and title of talk along with their CV. The title of the talk must be 65 characters or less, including spaces. Preference will be given to advanced PhD students, but all graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please note that applications cannot be accepted from graduate students who are participating in another session, and Lightning Talks speakers will not be eligible for SAH Annual Meeting Fellowships. In addition, to allow respondents time to prepare, this year we will ask participants to submit a brief text of their presentation in early 2014.
You may contact Michael McCulloch at email@example.com with any questions. Please submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1, 2013.

Frank Lloyd Wright has long been renowned for his work in the
decorative arts as well as in architecture. For Wright, the two
were inseparable. Furniture, fabrics, tiles, glass and even tableware were all integral contributors to a building’s design. While
the entire building as a work of art was a widely shared ideal
among arts and crafts and modernist architects, few were as
prolific as Wright in a spectrum of media or as enduring in their
pursuit of innovation in the decorative arts. This was a commitment that would leave a lasting impact on the avant-garde in
the decades following World War I as well.
Grand Rapids, Michigan, one of the nation’s great centers for
the design and production of furniture during the late 19th and
early 20th centuries, is a fitting location to gain fresh insight on
Wright’s remarkable output in the decorative arts during this
year’s conference, Wright on the Inside.

Located at 500 North Grand, the Metropolitan Building was constructed in 1907 and designed by the noted St. Louis firm of Mauran, Russell & Garden. Located at the high-profile corner of Grand and Olive, the building once primarily housed doctor's offices and a large pharmacy. The eight story building with white glazed brick exterior and gold accents had, until its recent renovation, been sitting vacant and boarded for many years. The renovation of this building into a mix of artist's lofts and on-site studios represents another important step forward for Grand Center and the flourishing arts scene in Midtown. Come tour this fantastic rehabilitation with project architect Paul Hohmann and see the transformative power of adaptive reuse.
Tickets, $15.00 for members, $20.00 for non-members.

Join Forgotten Chicago and the Northwest Chicago Historical Society as we offer an encore of our popular Jefferson Park walking tour, last offered in August 2010. Jefferson Park began as a small rural village in the mid-19th century and soon began to grow, with its location as a transportation hub resulting in the unusual street grid seen below. Growth in Jefferson Park occurred most rapidly during three distinct eras which we will examine in depth during this tour.
We’ll look at some of the remaining housing stock from when Jefferson Park was a quiet 19th century railroad suburb. The 1910s and 20s brought tremendous growth to the area as well as a wide range of ethnicities, and this tour will examine the development patterns and exemplary housing stock from this era as well as a unique ethnic enclave. We’ll also discuss growth during the 1950s and 60s spurred by construction of the Northwest (later Kennedy) Expressway and rapid transit, and suggest why and how this era’s development affected the neighborhood’s layout and urban environment.
The tour will also touch on other facets and curiosities of architecture, urban design and everyday life in the area. We’ll examine the center of Jefferson Park as a prime example of a neighborhood shopping district and look at different eras of storefront design and retail architecture. Remnants of long gone movie palaces and chain stores will be looked at as well.
Industry played a large part in the development of most Chicago neighborhoods but this was not the case with Jefferson Park. We will examine the industries that did locate here and question why the area did not grow in this sector relative to other areas. All of these elements will be tied together as we study the evolution of one of Chicago’s unique outlying neighborhoods.
When? Sunday June 9 at Noon. Rain or shine.
Where? The tour will meet and begin at the Jefferson Park Blue Line station (Milwaukee and Gale Street). It will conclude at the same location.
How Long? The tour will consist of approximately 3 1/2 miles of walking and will last about 3 hours.
How much? $15 per person. Advance purchase is required.
