Join fellow GSD alumni for a tour of The Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) designed by John Ronan Architects. Since its opening last fall, this center is devoted to fostering collaboration, innovation, and entrepreneurship between IIT’s students, faculty, alumni and partners.

This tour, guided by John Ronan MArch ’91, will kick off with introductions and remarks and then move to an exploration of this building’s variety of collaboration spaces for IIT’s project-based experiences and state-of-the art prototyping and fabrication facilities.


This event is organized by Alumni Council members Paola Aguirre MAUD ’11 and Frank Lee MAUD ’79, as well as John Ronan MArch ’91. For more information contact Paola at [email protected]
