Tag - Chicago Architecture Biennial

The second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial officially kicked off September 16, 2017, at the Chicago Cultural Center. The event is the largest architecture and design exhibition in the United States and aims to showcase the transformative impact of creativity and innovation in these fields.

We are gearing up for an exciting fall season, but first we've got to get our last bits of summer through a number of outdoor activities this weekend — soak it all in with this urban explorer itinerary. Then stop by the many creative (Expo Chicago & Chicago Architecture Biennial top the list) and exciting events (from Riot Fest to Taco Fest) throughout the warm afternoons before topping off the night at one of the fun concerts (Ed Sheerin is in town, plus several world music headliners). Come and join the party! Here are ten things to do in Chicago this weekend.
