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.

“Our initial list of contributors comprises practices and projects that resonate deeply with our four curatorial focus areas” noted Artistic Director Yesomi Umolu “We are especially proud to commission a series of new projects that address some of the most pressing issues of our time while advancing new forms of thinking and practice across the field of architecture and beyond.”
