The fourth edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) opens to the public today, responding to an urban design framework that proposes connecting community residents, architects, and designers to develop and create spaces that reflect the needs of communities and neighborhoods. Over 80 contributors from more than 18 countries respond to this framework through site-specific architectural projects, exhibitions, and programs across eight neighborhoods in Chicago and in the digital sphere.
Curated by the Biennial’s 2021 Artistic Director—designer, researcher, and educator David Brown—The Available City presents projects and programs that ask and respond to the question of who gets to participate in the design of the city by exploring new perspectives and approaches to policies. The Available City illuminates the potential for immediate new possibilities, highlights improvisational organizers of the city, and underscores the exponential impact of small elements in aggregate.
The Biennial is free and open to the public. It will be on view at sites and in locations throughout the city, activated through in-person and online programming through December 18, 2021.
