Our in-person presentation by Sidney Robinson will give us an insiders’ visual tour of the Sam and Ruth Van Sickle Ford House in Aurora. The architect of this fabulous mid-century modern house was Bruce Goff and the builder was Don Tosi, who later went on to build many mid-century homes in Naperville. Robinson, a retired UIC architecture professor, will provide his unique perspective on living in this home, as well as recount his personal interview that he had with Tosi. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event for Aurora and Naperville.

We hope to see you there.

P.S. The Sam and Ruth Van Sickle Ford House was recently featured on Geoffry Baer’s show on WTTW.
