Architect/Artist Creative Collaborations: An Evening with Architect Mark Sexton

Thinking into the Future: The Robie House Series on Architecture, Design and Ideas

Tuesday, October 2
Cocktail Reception: 5 pm, Presentation: 6 pm
Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago

The expressiveness of its glass facade distinguishes Spertus Institute for Jewish Studies from its neighbors in a 19th century landmark district dominated by giants of architecture – including Louis Sullivan and Daniel Burnham. The building's designers, Chicago-based firm Krueck + Sexton Architects, use modern materials to "paint" a structure in a way that its appearance changes continually throughout the day due to shifts in time, perspective and weather.

Join us as Krueck + Sexton co-founder Mark Sexton discusses the firm's projects such as Spertus Institute and the iconic Crown Fountain in Chicago's Millennium Park – and the coupling of art and technology in 21st century architecture.
