As part of the final presentation of work done for the AA/UIC Visiting school Doctoral Student Dipl.-Ing. Carin M. Schirmacher will be performing a short action in front of the Sears Tower tomorrow morning at 9am.
"Naming and Renaming buildings is especially here in Chicago a big topic (like the Marshall Fields/Macys). With this performance I want to question the naming rights and the causes that lie behind it in terms of architecture!"
Propaganda Flyers to be distributed during the act.
