The Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating an international forum on architecture and urbanism. Through a diverse program including exhibitions, commissions, publications, workshops, performances, and more, CAB advances architectural innovation and thinking by engaging practitioners, students, and the public to re-imagine the built world both globally and locally. CAB is committed to highlighting a future for architecture that is community-driven, sustainable, and equitable.
The signature program of the Chicago Architecture Biennial stands as North America’s largest international survey of contemporary architecture and takes place every two years at the Chicago Cultural Center and sites across the city. CAB has hosted three editions since its founding: ...and other such stories (2019); Make New History (2017); The State of the Art of Architecture (2015). The fourth edition, which will open in 2021, is titled The Available City. CAB programming throughout the year engages global audiences in conversations exploring critical ideas and questions facing the field, and beyond.
