Saturday, July 20, 2013

Christen Sundquist (BSAS 2009) has had a busy past year. She was part of a team that compiled an architectural genealogy in Chicago. It traces the lineage of architects and protégés in the city, and is an ongoing project which can be seen at http://www.sah.org/publications-and-research/chicago-architects-project  

Christen was also a researcher for the PBS documentary "10 Buildings that Changed America”, produced by PBS station WTTW Chicago, working with architectural historian and program host Geoffrey Baer. The program presents 10 trend-setting works of architecture that have shaped and inspired the American landscape. http://interactive.wttw.com/tenbuildings
