SOM Participates in Chicago Build Expo

Three designers from the Chicago office participated in the 2019 Chicago Build Expo. 

Architectural Associate Director Kevin Rodenkirch spoke on the panel, "Affordable Housing in Chicago." Rodenkirch worked on the recently opened Taylor Street Apartments and Little Italy Branch Library. One of the city’s first co-located Chicago Housing Authority and Public Library branches, the development includes a one-story public library branch and a multi-story mixed-income residential complex. 

Architectural associate Jorge Rovira presented "Multidisciplinarity in the Craft of Architecture." He discussed case studies of both supertall and low-rise buildings to illustrate how architects, engineers, clients, and contractors can create intricate teams to solve complex projects. 

Tiara Hughes participated on the panel, "Diversity in Construction." Hughes, a senior urban designer, concurrently serves as the Public Relations Director on the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA)'s National Board, and volunteers with both the NAACP ACT-SO program and the ACE Mentor Program.
