The State of the Art of Architecture
Chicago Architecture Biennial, Multiple venues, Chicago, USA, 03 October 2015 – 03 January 2016.
Through its constellation of exhibitions and full-scale installations, the public is invited to become involved with architecture in new and unexpected ways, and to take part in a global discussion. More than a profession or a repertoire of built artefacts, architecture is a dynamic cultural practice that permeates fundamental registers of everyday life. In an age of accelerated change, today’s architects, artists, designers, planners, and activists are developing an extraordinary range of visionary ideas that test the limits of these realms of everyday life. Explored here are the ambitions, challenges, and possibilities that are fuelling the architectural imagination today and steering the future of the field.
