Join us for the opening reception of Félix Candela's Concrete Shells: An Engineered Architecture for México and Chicago, curated by Alexander Eisenschmidt and originated through the research of scholar Juan Ignacio del Cueto Ruiz-Funes . Félix Candela's Concrete Shells: An Engineered Architecture for México and Chicago roots Félix Candela (1910-1997) as one of the most prolific architects of the 20th century in his advanced geometric designs and lasting influence in contemporary architecture. The exhibition spotlights Félix Candela’s Concrete Shells through photographs, architectural models, and plans, as well as his time as a professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago from 1971-1978.

Félix Candela's Concrete Shells: An Engineered Architecture for México and Chicago is on view January 19-March 3, 2018 at Gallery 400.
