The Chicago Architecture Biennial will provide a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience.
Designed as a multi-platform event, CAB will facilitate radical new thought about what the built environment should be in the 21st century. As North America’s largest international survey of contemporary architecture, CAB’s October 2015 lauch aligns with Venice, Italy; São Paulo, Brazil; and other great cities that are invested in the conversation concerning what the world should look like.
