Cliff Dwellers, in co-sponsorship with the Friends of Downtown and the Chicago Chapter of the AIA, are pleased to present another in their series of architectural lectures on Thursday July 27, 2017; Three Decades of Wheeler Kearns Architects.

Wheeler Kearns Architects (WKA), the 2016 Chicago Chapter of the American Institute of Architect’s (AIA) Firm of the Year, is a collective practice of architects. Spanning nearly thirty years, WKA has been involved in envisioning/master-planning, renovation, adaptive reuse, and new construction projects for institutional, residential, and community-driven organizations. Since our practice includes multiple project types, our portfolio is varied in imagery and language. Projects are developed around an “emotional center” that embodies our client’s energy, purpose, and vision. Three team members will navigate through 30 years of practice, recently completed, and in-progress work.
