A delegation from Milan, led by famed architect Stefano Boeri, traveled to Chicago from November 9–13 to take part in events associated with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. On November 12 at an award ceremony in Chicago, Mr. Boeri’s “Bosco Verticale” (Vertical Forest) received the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s prestigious award for “2015 Best Tall Building Worldwide.”

On November 10, a reception took place in honor of the delegation at Kendall College with a screening of the short film The Flying Gardeners, about the botanists who care for the Bosco Verticale’s trees and plants while suspended from the top of the building.
