Chicago Architect Features Kahler Slater Studio

April 14, 2023

FUTURE FORWARD: AIA Chicago's latest issue of Chicago Architect features how the Kahler Slater Studio is shaping the future of design.

The article explores how our collaboration with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's schools of architecture blurs the lines of pedagogy and practice as we engaged students to explore a new future for a site in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. The result of this inaugural semester has fueled student and professor creativity and is shaping the future of the profession.

“Because it’s a real-world project, it’s very meaningful to the students. They have the opportunity to see their work and their ideas come forward in a project. That’s extremely rewarding for anyone, especially a student.” – Trina Sandschafer, Kahler Slater Studio Director
