Symposium Schedule


Kick off the Chicago Symposium in Oak Park by celebrating 25 years of Docomomo US and the UNESCO World Heritage designation of eight Frank Lloyd Wright sites at the recently restored Unity Temple. The evening includes an opening plenary and reception.


Day two takes us to IIT's College of Architecture, the homebase of Mies van der Rohe. The day will begin with a keynote presentation and proceed with a series of parallel sessions. After lunch, take part in one of five uniquely crafted guided tours. 


Day three takes place at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a campus designed by SOM and Walter Netsch. The schedule is similar to the previous day, starting with a series of parallel sessions, then lunch and afternoon tours. In the evening we will celebrate downtown with a closing reception.


On Saturday it's time to get out and explore #moderninthemiddle with a full day of tours. Choose your own adventure with either morning and afternoon tours or the full-day landscapes tour.
