The Biennial Returns | Chicago Architecture Biennial

The second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) was the largest architecture and design exhibition in North America, showcasing the transformative global impact of creativity and innovation in these fields. The 2017 Biennial featured over 140 practitioners from more than 20 countries addressing the 2017 theme “Make New History.” Artistic Directors Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee selected architects and artists whose eye-opening creations invited the public to explore how the latest architecture can and will make new history in places around the world.

The Biennial was hosted by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events at the historic Chicago Cultural Center. It was also a city-wide platform that served citizens and invited visitors to explore Chicago. The 2017 Biennial programs included educational sessions with the Chicago Architecture Foundation serving 15,000 young people, as well as free tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed SC Johnson headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin.

The Make New History exhibition extended to off-site locations and was amplified through six community anchor exhibitions in the neighborhoods and two special project sites – plus installations, performances, talks, films, and more hosted by over 100 local and global cultural partners.
