Chicago to host Architecture Biennial from 1 October 2015

Chicago plans to host a large-scale architecture celebration once every two years, it has been confirmed. The first Chicago Architecture Biennial will run from 1 October 2015 until 3 January 2016 following a $2.5m donation from BP Global. The three-month event is said to include a showcase of scale models, digital renderings, photographs and displays that celebrate architecture in the city.

“BP has a long history of supporting programs, events and institutions that make Chicago great, and we’re proud to sponsor this celebration of the city’s significant contribution to world architecture,” said BP America Chairman and President John Mingé.

He continued: “From our bustling trading floor downtown, to our ground-breaking research and development center in Naperville, to our state-of-the-art Whiting Refinery just across the state line, more than 4,000 BP employees call this city and region home. Supporting this great event is just one more way we’re showing our pride in a place we and our heritage companies have called home for decades.”
