Dutch contributors

The Chicago Architecture Biennial 2019, titled ‘…and other such stories’, will form a uniquely discursive and interactive exploration of the experience of architecture and the built environment worldwide. More than 80 Biennial contributors from across four continents represent architects, artists, researchers, and social movements–in many cases collaborating across disciplines to present projects that ask urgent questions about the implications of architecture as it relates to land, memory, rights, and civic participation.

The Dutch exhibition contributors are Cohabitation Strategies, Ola Hassanain, and Wendelien van Oldenborgh.

About the Chicago Architecture Biennial

The Chicago Architecture Biennial is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating an international forum on architecture and urbanism through the production of distinctive exhibitions and public programs. The Biennial – the largest architecture and design exhibition in North America – creates new opportunities every two years for emerging talent in architecture, design, and the arts to engage with a wide public.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial is committed to providing a platform to unite the global vanguard of architectural thought and practice with the city of Chicago’s unique legacy of architectural innovation. In addition to its biennial constellation of exhibitions, full-scale installations, programming, and educational initiatives, the organization stewards and promotes an ongoing dialogue on architecture in and around the city. The third edition of the Biennial titled “…and other such stories” will open September 19, 2019, and will convene the world’s leading practitioners, theorists, and commentators in the field of architecture and urbanism to further explore, debate, and demonstrate the significance of architectural concepts in contemporary society. The 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial is led by Artistic Director Yesomi Umolu with curators Sepake Angiama and Paulo Tavares.
