 „Recognizing the importance of hr City of Athens, Roman Emperor Hadrian established the first Athenaeum in Greece as a place where poets, scholars, architects, and artists could exchange ideas.

To commemorate the founding of Western culture and civilization and to invigorate contemporary art in architecture today, The Chicago Athenaeum is forming “The Athens Architecture Club.”

The principle of this club also has its tradition in Chicago during the late 19th-Century with “The Chicago Architecture Club” organized by Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Daniel Burnham, and other leading practitioner of the time.

For The Athens Architecture Club´s first event, the Museum is organizing an exhibition of art and drawings by important international practitioners.“ - Christian Narkiewicz-Laine
