Architecture lecture

Ridge Historical Society, 10621 S. Seeley Ave., Chicago, invites members and visitors with a special interest in architecture to its 2004 lecture series, "In the Cool of the Evening," featuring Walter Burley Griffin, Frank Lloyd Wright and other Prairie School architects.

Two programs are scheduled for August and one in September.

Mati Maldre, professor of Photography at Chicago State University and photography teacher at the Beverly Art Center, will open the series Friday at 7 p.m. He is author of "Walter Burley Griffin in America." Many of his photos from that volume are on display. He will also demonstrate his rare Deardorff camera. Champagne and light refreshments will be served following the program. Admission is $5 for members, and $8 for others. For reservations, call (773) 881-1675.

Maldre had also created a map of Beverly and Morgan Park Prairie School homes. Copies are free to visitors. A tour group sponsored by the Chicago Architecture foundation will visit Ridge Historical Society Sunday, Sept. 12, and the exhibit has been extended until then.

Debra Nemeth's presentation on Frank Lloyd Wright's "American System-Built Homes' will be given Friday, Aug. 27. "The History of Our Historic Districts" will be given on Friday, Sept. 10.

The Ridge Historic District embraces most of Beverly Hills and Morgan Park, including the historic Metra railroad stations, Longwood Drive and Walter Burley Griffin 104th Place Historic Districts.

It was a wonderful talk. Mr. Maldre had a wonderful map that took us on a virtual tour as he explained the history and architectural significance of each house.
