The Architecture and Design Network's Art of Architecture series features Steve Weisenthal, the university architect at the University of Chicago, tonight at 6 p.m. at the Arkansas Arts Center. 

Wiesenthal will talk about the expansion of the Chicago campus in his lecture, “Architectural Heritage and Innovation at the University of Chicago.” From a University of Arkansas press release:

The University of Chicago campus, rooted in the tradition of grey stone Collegiate Gothic and taking inspiration from the forward looking spirit of America’s premier city of architectural innovation, is in the midst of a historic transformation. In the first part of the 21st century, the campus has undergone more change than it has at any other time in its 110-year history. Guided by principle and overarching planning themes, the campus has added buildings designed by a number of architectural luminaries, including Helmut Jahn, Tod Williams, Billie Tsien, Jeanne Gang, Ann Beha, Jamie Carpenter and Michael Van Walkenberg. In spite of transformative physical changes to its campus, the University remains committed to its core values.

There will be a reception for Weisenthal at 5:30 p.m., before the lecture. The event is free.
