CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE BIENNIAL
Arts + Public Life is proud to partner with Chicago Architecture Biennial this fall to celebrate architecture and the built environment. The third edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial will open September 19, 2019 – January 5, 2020 , and will convene the world’s leading practitioners, theorists, and commentators in the field of architecture and urbanism to further explore, debate, and demonstrate the significance of architectural concepts in contemporary society. The 2019 edition, titled ...and other such stories, embraces a broad spectrum of perspectives on architecture to imagine space and the built environment anew. The Curatorial team draws on the spatial, historical, and socio-economic conditions of Chicago to consider questions of land, memory, rights, and civic participation.
