Are You Ready for openhousechicago?
You haven’t heard from me in a long time because I’ve been busy helping organize the coolest event this city has ever seen: openhousechicago 2011. The Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) is ready for openhousechicago this weekend (Oct. 15th and 16th), are you?
Organized by the CAF, openhousechicago (OHC) is a FREE weekend festival (Oct. 15th and 16th) giving people a backstage pass to over 100 great places and spaces across Chicago. Sites range from the original Sears Tower in North Lawndale, Louis Armstrong’s Sunset Cafe in Bronzeville, the nation’s first organic rooftop farm in Rogers Park, to the basement of the Chicago Cultural Center and rooftop garden of Lake Point Tower . . . and much more.
