Third Thursdays | Celebrating Our New AIA Fellows


Join us after work on the Third Thursday of the month to unwind, connect with old and new friends, and learn from one another. Focusing on AIA Chicago members and their innovative and groundbreaking projects, each month’s gathering will offer a different theme. Come to learn, eat and drink, and engage in lively conversation with the Chicago architecture community.
