this year’s artistic directors sharon johnston and mark lee, of LA–based firm johnston marklee, selected the participants who will present their work at the chicago cultural center, as well as additional sites across the city. ‘our goal for the 2017 chicago architecture biennial is to continue to build on the themes and ideas presented in the first edition,’ explains lee. ‘we hope to examine, through the work of the chosen participants, the continuous engagement with questions of history and architecture as an evolutionary practice,’ adds johnston.

the city of chicago is proud to host new projects by architects, artists and designers from around the world with the 2017 chicago architecture biennial,’ explains chicago mayor, rahm emanuel. ‘we are pleased to announce another outstanding lineup of work and perspectives to build on the success of the inaugural 2015 edition. not only will the breadth of work represented by designers from around the world showcase the future of architecture, but it will also further reinforce chicago’s stature as a global city.’

 

this year’s list of participants was carefully chosen to showcase the future of architecture and design rooted in history,’ says todd palmer, executive director of the chicago architecture biennial. ‘through presenting a variety of work, we aim to give visitors of all kinds, from leaders across the global architecture community to the interested traveler, an in-depth look at architecture as we know it today, and the chance to be inspired by how architecture is making new history in cities around the world.’
