Retrospective/New Perspective
June 7, through Summer 2002

This summer ArchiTech presents dozens of original drawings, prints and photographs from the gallery's own collection; highlights from ArchiTech's 18 notable exhibitions over the past three years.

This special show and sale, titled "Retrospective/New Perspective," will be on exhibit through the month of August. It celebrates the launch of the gallery's first website,, where each of ArchiTech's landmark exhibitions are catalogued in detail.

The newest show will feature important works by Frank Lloyd Wright, Daniel Burnham and Viollet le Duc, as well as drawings by Alfonso Iannelli, Henry P.Glass and Bruce Goff. The photographs of Hedrich Blessing, exclusive to the ArchiTech collection, will be offered in addition to contemporary abstract works by Madeleine Isom, the "Zen Mistress" of architectural photography.

Art Deco designs from Chicago's 1933 World's Fair will be paired with extravagant Beaux-Arts drawings from the early 20th Century. And a spectacular modernist embassy by Chicago's mysterious Abel Faidy will be showcased alongside Giambattista Piranesi's 18th Century prisons.

This summer, the launch of brings the treasures of River North's ArchiTech Gallery to collectors around the world. Together, they provide graphic evidence of the power of architecture.

"Retrospective/New Perspective" opens at ArchiTech on Friday, June 7 and continues through Saturday, August 31.
