Event Details

Whether in Dubai, Shanghai or Chicago, transformational architectural design across the globe begins within walking distance of the Gleacher Center. Why? One major reason is the brain trust of Adrian Smith, Gordon Gill, and Robert Forest. How did Chicago come to be the architectural capital of the USA, if not, the world? Why did the movers and shakers of China and the United Arab Emirates seek out design talent here in the Loop for the some of the most recognizable structures in the world? Together, Adrian Smith, Gordon Gill and Robert Forest have designed the world’s first positive energy building, some of the planet’s tallest structures and are transforming several landmarks in downtown Chicago. Plan now to hear how the dedication of Smith, Gill and Forest to the design of intelligent, energy-efficient and high-performance architecture is having a profound effect on the discipline’s theory and practice around the world.
