chicago architecture biennial:




The Chicago Architecture Biennial announced today the first group of contributors to the 2019 edition and its publication. Titled …and other such stories, the biennial will form an expansive and multi-faceted exploration of the field of architecture and the built environment globally. The first 50 contributors — spanning the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia — form an initial, representative group, and include an early selection of ambitious commissioned projects. These projects will address key questions about the implications of architecture as it relates to land, memory, rights, and civic participation, and are particularly inspired by the history and conditions of the City of Chicago.
