Two UrbanWorks projects, La Casa Student Housing and Galewood Elementary School, were featured in the exhibition “New Chicago Architecture” curated by the Chicago Athenaeum. The week-long exhibition was attended by several thousands of people in Chicago, before traveling to Milan and Athens. This survey of New Chicago Architecture, featuring over 100 architecture practices – local, national, and international, offers new insight to the contemporary direction of Chicago Architecture today, highlighting the ambitions, challenges, and possibilities which are fueling the architecture profession. An accompanying book, “New Chicago Architecture” will be published in February 2016.
The Chicago Athenaeum is an International Museum of Architecture and Design dedicated to the Art of Design. The exhibition took place from November 12-17, 2015 and was located at 332 S. Michigan, Chicago, Illinois.
