Big architecture news out of Chicago yesterday — and coming from a city widely regarded for its embrace of great buildings, that’s saying something. In 2015, Chicago will create an architecture biennial. This is amazing and exciting news!
In the fall of 2015, the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial—an international forum on architecture and the designed environment—will open in Chicago. The Biennial will bring the world’s leading architectural talent together to explore the ideas, ambitions, and challenges facing the contemporary city in an age of accelerated change. Featuring the work of both established and emerging architects, the Biennial will address the major concerns of our time: the social, environmental, aesthetic, technological, and economic issues that shape the world we live in.
