CAF and AIA Chicago welcome Chicago author Henry H. Kuehn for an introduction and tour through images and anecdotes from his new book, Architects’ Gravesites: A Serendipitous Guide (MIT Press). This illustrated guide to more than 200 gravesites of famous architects, most of them in the United States, searches for linkage and continuity between architects’ careers and their final resting places. What Kuehn finds is something different: often, the grave does not fit the reputation. For some of the biggest names, such as Philip Johnson and Paul Rudolph, there is no burial site at all but rather places of personal significance where their ashes were strewn. Kuehn will sign books after the presentation.
