Events, installations and exhibitions will run throughout its three-month duration, encouraging attendees to consider architecture in unique ways.
Australian practice otherothers has been invited to participate in the Biennial. ADR asked directors David Neustein and Grace Mortlock for a brief insight into their involvement in the program:
“We feel honoured to be exhibiting alongside some of our architectural heroes (and crushes) in Chicago. The theme of the Biennial is ‘The State of the Art of Architecture’. As Australia’s de-facto representatives we have been given the daunting task of reflecting on the current state of Australian architecture.”
The Chicago Architecture Biennial will run from 3 October 2015 until 3 January 2016.
