The State of the Art of Architecture

The State of the Art of Architecture


For the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial, Co-Artistic Directors Joseph Grima and Sarah Herda appointed Zak Group as graphic designers. As North America’s largest international survey of contemporary architecture, the Chicago Architecture Biennial provides a platform for groundbreaking architectural projects and spatial experiments that demonstrate how creativity and innovation can radically transform our lived experience. This first edition was titled “The State of the Art of Architecture”.
