Chicago Architecture Biennial: Preview With Photos
The “State of the Art of Architecture,” North America’s inaugural architecture biennial, is now firmly underway in Chicago. Over a hundred practices from all over Chicago and the world are displaying projects covering the gamut of types and ideas at stake.
An architecture event of this magnitude demands a thorough review. I will be writing a series of critical articles starting 10/26 going over the concept and execution of this Biennial as well as some of the works shown inside it. Until then, here is a tiny peek at what’s in store.
