About the Chicago Architecture Biennial
The Chicago Architecture Biennial, to take place October 3, 2015 through January 3, 2016, will provide a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience.  Through a constellation of exhibitions, full-scale installations, and a program of events, the Biennial will invite the public to engage with and think about architecture in new and unexpected ways, and to take part in a global discussion on the future of the field. The inaugural edition takes its title, The State of the Art of Architecture, from a 1977 conference organized by Chicago architect Stanley Tigerman, which invited leading American designers to Chicago to discuss the current state of the field.
