Herman Miller Design Ride: Midwest Modern
Guided by Charles Adler, cofounder of Kickstarter and a principal of Lost Arts Chicago
Saturday, September 16th – 2pm
Home to the New Bauhaus and the first skyscrapers of the 20th century, Chicago’s design and architecture heritage runs deep. Get a taste of the Windy City’s past and present with Charles Adler—cofounder of Kickstarter and a principal of Lost Arts Chicago—as he leads a ride along Lake Shore Drive’s urban parkway. Head west into the Loop to catch iconic structures like Bertrand Goldberg’s Marina City and IIT’s Crown Hall, an elegant exemplar of International Style modernism designed by Mies van der Rohe. We’ll groove past the Warehouse, the club that birthed house music, and take in work by the city’s next generation, including the Poetry Foundation building completed in 2011 by John Ronan Architects. The ride should last around two hours. Come prepared with a puncture repair kit, a snack, and helmet. Pedals with foot retention are not required.
