A+U 570: Make New History. After The Second Chicago Architecture Biennial
Participants of the Chicago Architecture Biennial’s second edition included 140 artists and architects from 20 countries, under the theme ‘Make New History’, and this issue is guest edited by its artistic directors, Sharon Johnson and Mark Lee. The first part offers a retrospective look at the biennial together with architectural historian Michael Hays, in which what it shows about the qualified autonomy, framing, and partnerships seen in current practice is discussed. The second part introduces built work and projects selected with reference to the exhibition’s theme, as well as responses from the architects to questions about what this theme means to their thought and practice.
