For the first time the Chicago Architecture Center will open its award winning space for a night of drinks and discovery taking in the spectacular view of Chicago’s skyline. Explore both floors of the Center while enjoying beer compliments of Revolution Brewery and tunes from Chicago-based DJ KZMO. Watch the history of Chicago unfold before your eyes in the interactive City Model Experience and discover the architects of tomorrow in our special display of Newhouse Architecture + Design Competition winners. Our popular CAC Design Store will also be open to browse.

Don’t miss Energy Revolution, our newest exhibit, that dives into innovative technologies and sustainable practices that cities and individuals can adopt to combat climate change. Mix and mingle among captivating models of energy usage in Chicago’s iconic buildings. Listen to a live DJ as you learn about how a nightclub in Glasgow is using energy generated on the dance floor to power itself–there is even a real-world example of a kinetic dance floor to try out for yourself.

Your ticket purchase will fund the CAC’s education programs like GirlsBuild!, Teen Fellows and the Newhouse Architecture + Design Competition. Each attendee will receive drink tickets for two complimentary beverages: either beer generously provided by Revolution Brewing, wine or nonalcoholic drinks. Light bites will also be available.
