The Chicago Architecture Biennial Is Open

The inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial opened October 3 and runs through January 3, 2016. Billed as "largest international survey of contemporary architecture taking place in North America,” it features large-scale exhibitions as well as public programs. Featured on Chicago Tonight are renderings for the kiosks that will be on display in Millennium Park for the three-month span and then reassembled along the lakefront as a lasting legacy. DNAinfo reports that the biennial showcases the work of more than 100 architects from more than 30 countries. “The displays range from the practical, including Theaster Gates' restoration of the Stony Island Arts Bank, to whimsical lakefront kiosks such as the limestone structure "Rock" designed for Montrose Beach by African architect Kunlé Adeyemi in conjunction with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.”
