HPF Speaker Series–Architecture in Pullman: Speaker Lee Bey
October 16, 2022 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Join the Historic Pullman Foundation for its 2022 Speaker Series, highlighting the history, neighborhood, culture, and monument of Pullman. The Speaker Series will take place the third Sunday of every month now through October.
The October featured speaker will be Lee Bey, a photographer, writer, lecturer, and consultant who documents and interprets the built environment—and the often complex political, social, and racial forces that shape spaces and places. His most recent book is Southern Exposure: The Overlooked Architecture of Chicago’s South Side.
His writing on architecture and urban design has been featured in Architect, Chicago magazine, Architectural Record, and many news outlets. His photography has appeared in Chicago Architect, Old-House Journal, CITE, and in international design publications, including Bauwelt and Modulør.
A member of the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board and architecture critic, Bey is also a senior lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and served as deputy chief of staff for urban planning under former Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley.
