Starship Chicago: Helmut Jahn's Thompson Center at the Crossroads

Jack Guthman will participate in a panel discussion on the future of Helmut Jahn’s James R. Thompson Center on Jan. 5, 2018. Following the viewing of Nathan Eddy’s new short film “Starship Chicago,” the panel will “address the local, state and international value and lasting global interest of Jahn’s artistic statement and a symbol of Illinois citizens, consider the controversies over its use and function, and, in light of its potential demolition and loss, explore how ‘making new history’ by repurposing a site brings both opportunities and challenges.”

Guthman serves as chairman of the Chicago Architectural Biennial.
