“In Chicago in 1886,” states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, “the first Architecture Club was founded in Chicago, and the clubs spread to cities across the United States well up into the 1920s.” “To this end, The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design felt it appropriate to resurrect this great tradition, but on a global scale and in the birthplace of Western Civilization—the actual and symbolic roots of Western Architecture—the City of Athens.”

Organisation: The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies in collaboration with The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design
