Think Tank Think Tank


The Think Tank is an annual symposium designed by Legat Architects, where each year we invite experts from different fields to join us and speak about their areas of expertise, and how design influences and impacts those sectors. In recent years, our symposium has featured experts on biophilic and sustainable design, health and welfare, school safety, and urban sprawl. During last year's event, the Think Tank partnered with the Chicago Architecture Biennial and was featured on ArchDaily, Bustler, and Architectural Products magazine.

In 2020 we will be discussing the topic of resilience in a post-COVID world among various market segments, including health care, transportation infrastructure, and institutional/educational design. Our event is co-hosted by the Chaddick Institute at DePaul University, and is open to the public.

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, this year's Think Tank event will be held entirely online as a series of lunchtime lectures hosted by experts from around the world.
