The inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial launched yesterday, with three months of events, including lectures, workshops, tours, exhibitions, performances, film screenings and social activities. Titled The State of the Art of Architecture, the Biennial is the largest survey of contemporary architecture in North America. It is fitting that the city that built the world’s first skyscraper, will showcase innovative and transformative architectural, spatial and design projects and invite the public to engage in conversations to expand thinking about shaping built environments in the future.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial runs from October 3, 2015 to January 3, 2016.
