T+E+A+M Selected to Participate in 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial

Assistant professors Thom Moran, Ellie Abrons, Adam Fure, and Meredith Miller, T+E+A+M, have been selected to participate in the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial. Entitled “Make New History,” the biennial takes place September 16, 2017–January 7, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois.

T+E+A+M was named one of more than 100 firms and artists representing countries around the world to participate the biennial, selected by the 2017 Biennial Artistic Directors, Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, of the Los Angeles–based firm Johnston Marklee. The participants will present their architectural work at the Chicago Cultural Center, as well as additional sites across the city. T+E+A+M is also opening a temporary outdoor theater design in the Chicago area in June 2017, as recipients of the Adrian Smith Prize for the 2017 Ragdale Ring.

This is the second Chicago Architecture Biennial, the first one in 2015 attracted more than 530,000 Chicago residents and visitors, which—as the largest international exhibition of contemporary architecture ever to have taken place in North America—was unprecedented, featuring the ideas of more than 100 architecture and design firms from more than 30 countries.

“This year’s list of participants was carefully chosen to showcase the future of architecture and design rooted in history,” said Todd Palmer, Executive Director of the Chicago Architecture Biennial. “Through presenting a variety of work, we aim to give visitors of all kinds, from leaders across the global architecture community to the interested traveler, an in-depth look at architecture as we know it today, and the chance to be inspired by how architecture is making new history in cities around the world.”

About the Chicago Architecture Biennial

The Chicago Architecture Biennial provides a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience.

The manifestation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s vision for a major international architectural event and an outcome of the comprehensive cultural plan developed by Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, under the leadership of Michelle T. Boone, the inaugural 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial was presented through the support of BP, and in partnership with the City of Chicago and the Graham Foundation. Joseph Grima and Sarah Herda, co-artistic directors, curated the 2015 biennial, entitled The State of the Art of Architecture. Through its constellation of exhibitions, full-scale installations, and programming, the Chicago Architecture Biennial invites the public to engage with and think about architecture in new and unexpected ways, and to take part in a global discussion on the future of the field.
