Through the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Northwestern's strengths in interdisciplinary study, global research and collaboration are on full display. From a large-scale art installation to lectures by faculty and internationally-renowned guest artists, all programs focus on the Biennial’s theme, “Make New History.” Watch as Block Museum director Lisa Corrin explains.
Professor David Van Zanten will deliver a presentation on Chicago architect Marion Mahony, sponsored by the Beverly Willis Foundation, a New York philanthropy organization supporting women in architecture.
The Chicago Architecture Biennial provides a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can transform the lived experience. Through exhibitions, installations and programming, the Biennial invites the public to engage with architecture in new and unexpected ways, and to take part in a global discussion on the future of the field.
