Reflecting on the current global situation, Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) has reinvented its 2021 edition, in order to generate conversations about the “intersection of architecture and design and such critical issues as health, sustainability, equity, and racial justice”. The Biennial has also announced the appointment of David Brown, designer, researcher, and educator, based at the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago, as the Artistic Director of the fourth edition, entitled The Available City. Questioning the impact collective space can have in cities today, The Available City will open in September of 2021 featuring free, public programming at sites in neighborhoods across Chicago and on digital platforms. Grounded in the neighborhoods of Chicago, the Biennial seeks to enrich the entire City by amplifying and showcasing innovative ideas in design, community building, and creative placemaking, according to Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.
