What is one of the things we love about Chicago? Its diversity and multicultural identities represented by all of us, and nothing celebrates cultural diversity better than food. Join us to experience this collaborative design potluck—a gathering around food by and for the Harvard GSD community to celebrate Chicago’s architecture and urbanism.

We’ll set the open, gridded table—where everyone will have the opportunity to contribute something that represents a special taste of their favorite culinary experience in Chicago. Savory, sweet, beverages… the more diverse, the better!


This event is hosted at The Silver Room, founded in 1997 by Eric Williams LF ’18—a space for art, culture and community that houses tasteful collection of eclectic jewelry, fashion, art and music. The Silver Room has two locations—a storefront in Hyde Park and a pop-up space in Wicker Park. Click here to learn more about the Silver Room.

This event is organized by Paola Aguirre MAUD ’11, Frank Lee MAUD ’79, Annabell Ren MAUD ’16, Nilay Mistry MLAUD ’10, Kerrie Mistry MAUD ’09, Ethan Lassiter MUP ’15 and Eric Williams LF ’18.
