A platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience.

About the Chicago Architecture Biennial

The Chicago Architecture Biennial is North America's largest international survey of contemporary architecture, providing a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience. The 2015 Biennial, The State of the Art of Architecture, focused on projects and experiments from around the world, offering a global stage for conversation and exchange of ideas.

The 2017 Biennial, Make New History, will engage questions of historical precedence, context, and dialogue in the work of contemporary architects across the world, and explore how the intersection of art and architecture has helped develop those questions.

University of Chicago's Chicago Architecture Biennial events and programs are currently listed here.
