APRIL 2nd - Goldberg on Goldberg at Maxim's and 1300 Astor

This event is sold out.
An Evening Featuring Bertrand Goldberg Presented by his son, Geoffrey Goldberg With several building designed by Bertrand Goldberg in danger of demolition, we will have the honor of hearing his son Geoffey Goldberg, a talented architect in his own right, discuss his father's works and the innovative designs that are so important to Chicago's rich architectural heritage.

Re-creating the famous Parisian restaurant Maxim's (designed by Maurice Carrere in 1893) was a "labor of love" for Mr. and Mrs. Goldberg. The art nouveau jewel quickly became the place to dine, dance and be seen for Chicago's elite. The restaurant is now owned and managed by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs as the Nancy Goldberg International Center.

The lecture will be followed by tours of apartments in the 1300 North Astor Street building (1962 - Bertrand Goldberg Assoc.)
