Evanston History Center’s ‘Under the Buffalo Lecture’

Chicago in Stone and Clay: A Guide to the Windy City’s Architectural Geology with Raymond Wiggers

The interplay between architecture and stone, soils, and sediments is an intimate one, and Chicagoland is a perfect place to explore this fascinating connection.

Geologist and natural-history tour guide, Raymond Wiggers, will discuss his new book, Chicago in Stone and Clay. Wiggers will explore the ornamental stone used on the Windy City’s most famous landmarks. He will also cover the imposing engineering challenges of anchoring skyscrapers in the city’s treacherous lakebed sediments.

This will be a captivating discussion with surprising links between science, engineering, and urban history.
