Chicago Architecture Firms Join in Climate Strike

Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in New York on Wednesday a two-week journey from England via an emission-free racing yacht. She’s there to speak at the United Nations. Noted Chicago firms like Studio Gang, bKL Architecture, and Pappageorge Haymes Partners have joined the organization Architects Advocate for Action on Climate Change, which is organizing a #StandWithGreta campaign. We'll hear more about what to expect from the strike, and why so many Chicago-based architects decided to be a part of it, from Thomas Jacobs, cofounder of Architects Advocate for Action on Climate Change. He’s a partner at Krueck and Sexton Architects.
