Venues and Sites


Free exhibitions, installations, tours, films, and talks — plan your visit to the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial. The largest exhibition of contemporary architecture, art, and design in North America is open and on view from September 17, 2021 to December 18, 2021.

The 2021 edition, The Available City, will be on view at sites and in locations throughout the city and activated through in-person and online programming.

The projects in The Available City bring ideas for collective spaces to life through built projects, exhibitions, essays, workshops, and programs that activate neighborhood sites in ways that will engage and enhance the community experience.

Over 80 contributors from more than 18 countries will present site-specific architectural projects, exhibitions, and programs across eight neighborhoods in Chicago and in the digital sphere.
