Second Chicago Architecture Biennial to Open on September 16th, 2017
The second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) is the largest architecture and design exhibition in North America, showcasing the transformative global impact of creativity and innovation in these fields. This year’s Biennial features over 141 practitioners from more than 20 countries addressing the 2017 theme “Make New History.”
An outgrowth of the city's Cultural Plan, the biennial showcases Chicago's legacy as a birthplace of modern architecture and reasserts its centrality to global architectural discourse. The Chicago Cultural Plan was co-created by City staff, an advisory council, and the people of Chicago, facilitated by Lord Cultural Resources and Commissioner Michelle T. Boone. It was the city's first Cultural Plan in over 25 years and the impact of the Plan has been unprecedented.
