    Chicago Architecture Biennial: Photo Preview

    Jessica A.S. Letaw
    Oct 9, '15 10:10 AM EST

    The "State of the Art of Architecture," North America's inaugural architecture biennial, is now firmly under way in Chicago.  Over a hundred practices from all over Chicago and the world are displaying projects covering the gamut of types, ideas at stake, and representational scales and modes.

    An architecture event of this magnitude demands a thorough review. I will be writing a series of critical articles starting 10/26 going over the concept and execution of this Biennial as well as some of the works shown inside it.  

    Until then, here is a tiny peek at what's in store.
