Unbuilt Projects and Fantasy Architecture

Vol. XX No. 1 - SPRING 2009

Thom Greene, AIA, of Greene and Proppe Design, Inc, is proud to present his collection of designs, sketches and renderings at the Edgewater Historical Society Museum from April 24 until June 6, 2009.

The exhibit consists of two sections. The first is a collection of unbuilt designs and concepts for various sites within Edgewater and the Chicago area that have not been realized. The collection covers 20 years of work.

The second section of the exhibit covers 31 years of intriguing creations ranging from high-rise works of the imagination to highly stylized architectural oddities.

The main thread that ties these two diverse bodies of work together is Thom Greene’s strong rendering skill, practical sensibility, artistic style and flare for color and form. Thom has been recognized in the past for his extensive work beautifying the Edgewater and Andersonville communities, as well as throughout Chicago.

This exhibit at the EHS Museum is an opportunity to glimpse into Thom Greene’s minds eye and experience his lighthearted, playful approach to fantasy design.

There will be an opening reception on Friday, April 24 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. with a special presentation by Thom Greene. This presentation will be repeated on Friday, May 15th from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

The museum hours are regularly on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. The Edgewater Historical Society Museum, designed by Mr. Greene, is located in a renovated 1925 fire station. The EHS museum is pleased to host this exhibit. Stop by for a visit or join the celebration at the opening on April 24th.
