Today I'll be hosting Matthias Bottger during his visit to the College of Architecture at IIT. Mr. Bottger is the co-founder of raumtaktik out of Berlin and organized the German pavilion at the 2008 Venice Biennale. He has just published Updating German: 100 Projects for a Better Future which summarizes the exhibition. He's in Chicago as part of the "Bauhaus to Green House" program and will be lecturing at the Art Institute tonight.
