NEWS

The Chicago Architecture Biennial announces the launch of the Lakefront Kiosk Competition: an international, open submission competition that calls for a designer to realize an innovative architectural work on the shoreline of Lake Michigan.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial, the largest international survey of contemporary architecture in North America, will launch its inaugural edition in October 2015, entitled "The State of the Art of Architecture." In addition, the first commissioned project will be a photo essay on Chicago by world-renowned photographer Iwan Baan.

Grantee News

This exhibition of over fifty drawings and prints from the collection of Alvin Boyarsky represent a period between 1979 and 1990 when the AA in London, led by Boyarsky, produced an extraordinary program of exhibitions and publications rooted in drawing not only as a representational medium but also as a form of architecture in its own right.

Open Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-6pm, the bookshop offers a selection of publications by Graham Foundation grantees and titles that relate to the foundation's public program of exhibitions and talks, as well as new, historically significant, and hard-to-find publications on architecture, urbanism, art, and related fields.
