The 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial would like to announce that press and professional accreditation is now open. The second edition of the Biennial, entitled Make New History, will take place from September 16, 2017, to January 7, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois. The press and professional preview will take place September 14 to 15, 2017. Over 100 firms and artists representing countries around the world were selected by the 2017 Biennial Artistic Directors, Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, of the Los Angeles–based firm Johnston Marklee, and their architectural work will be presented at the Chicago Cultural Center, as well as additional sites across the city.
