The Biennial Society is a Chicago Architecture Biennial affinity group of architecture and design enthusiasts, collectors and civic leaders who share an interest in the intersection of civics, arts, culture and architecture, and who support the Biennial’s unique promise to further connect Chicago to the world. Through the Biennial Society, members will further the mission of the Biennial and ensure its place as an ongoing Chicago institution.

The Biennial Society supports the bi-annual endeavor across odd exhibition years and most notably keeps it active, relevant and visible during its off-years. The Biennial Society develops and sponsors events with artists, architects and designers, curators, and cultural leaders that reflect the dynamic issues connecting Chicago to creativity, innovation and contemporary global concerns in the built environment.

We invite you to join the Biennial Society as a charter member, thereby becoming a part of the Biennial’s future and sharing in exciting and meaningful programs of interest to friends and supporters of the Biennial.
