An early heads up for those of you in Chicago, or with the disposable income to fly here for an evening. Our pal Edward Lifson dropped us a line to let us know that he and his fellow Mies van der Rohe Society members are throwing a 124th birthday party this Thursday for the legendary architect at one of his most perfect creations: Illinois Institute of Technology‘s Crown Hall. They’ll be using the event, called “Riddle Mies This,” as a fundraiser for the Society, which is about as valuable a cause as there could be. The event is described as “an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and trivia.” Here are the details:
