Earlier this month the Chicago Architecture Biennial announced the first group of contributors to the 2019 edition, titled …and other such stories. The biennial will form an expansive and multi-faceted exploration of the field of architecture and the built environment globally.
The first 51 contributors — spanning the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia — form an initial, representative group, and include an early selection of ambitious commissioned projects. These projects will address key questions about the implications of architecture as it relates to land, memory, rights, and civic participation, and are particularly inspired by the history and conditions of the City of Chicago.
Biennial Executive Director Todd Palmer said of the list: "We are thrilled to be partner with such a diverse and insightful group of contributors and tell important stories about who we are, and who we may become."
Over the coming months, the Biennial will announce the full list of contributors and key programming for this year’s edition of the Biennial. You can learn more here.
