The Chicago Architecture Biennial officially launches next week, but behind the scenes, we’ve been hard at work preparing for the grand opening next Wednesday. In partnership with Malose Malahlela of Johannesburg’s Keleketla! Library and Chicago’s own Jim Duignan and Jeff Kowalkowski of the Stockyard Institute, the Museum’s future home at 1322 West Taylor Street will be hosting a built sound environment which reflects the disappearing of public housing and gentrification.

Yesterday, the installation of the scaffolding component of Malose’s piece started on Taylor Street. In our offices, we had our second day of training of our public housing resident Cultural Workforce Training Program, who will be leading tours of the installation.

Tours will be available at the following times:
Thursday / Friday: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Saturday / Sunday: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Can’t make it at these times? Contact us to schedule tours at other days and times throughout the week.
