To celebrate the opening of their exhibition in the Chicago Architecture Biennial's Pin-Up Space, founding members and the next generation of Arquitectos host a "Saludo y Encuentro" (meet and greet) - a short presentation followed by a night filled with community, friends, music and architecture.
Arquitectos, Inc. is a non-profit organization that stands for the society of hispanic professional architects and whose mission is to provide development, mentorship, community assistance and further enrich the architectural profession through different cultural views and practices. Arquitectos was established in 1985 by a small group of Latino professionals in Chicago. The organization's initial objective was to provide a valuable resource that offered Latino architects opportunities for career and professional development. Currently, the organization continues to provide professional support and has expanded to include two student chapters.
