January Meeting Details – DIRTT Sponsorship!!!

Happy 2014, LBC Collaborative Chicago!  We have two exciting announcements to kick off the New Year:

First, we are now in the registration phase of the 2014 LBC Chicago Design Competition.  We already have commitments from students at Judson University and IIT, as well as registrations from recent graduates and other professional teams.  Our Charrette #1 is scheduled for Jan. 30th / 6:00 PM @ YR&G in Chicago.  Everyone is invited whether you are already registered, are thinking about registering, or just want to participate in the discussion.  (Registration is now extended through Feb 15, 2014.)

Charrette #1 will present more information about the Eli Whitney school and site assessments that have taken place so far.  +Space will also speak about social equity/health/beauty as it relates to the LBC and architecture/urban space in general.

Thanks to our sponsor!!
