Tracing / Traces: Architecture and the Archive 2019

On Saturday, November 9, 2019, MAS Context is organizing the third edition of our Tracing / Traces event when readers will have the chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at selected items from the Ryerson & Burnham Archives located at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Five architects/offices will select items of the collection and discuss them in relationship to their practice, the discipline, and/or society. Nathaniel Parks, Tigerman McCurry Art and Architecture Archivist of the Ryerson & Burnham Libraries, will share the history of the same items.

This year’s participants include:

  • Kelly Bair – BairBalliet
  • Gia Biagi – Studio Gang
  • Judith De Jong – De Jong Urban Projects
  • Joshua G. Stein – Radical Craft
  • Dan Wheeler – Wheeler Kearns Architects
