- Stanley Tigerman, Tigerman McCurry Architects

In conjunction with the competition, CAF will host a major exhibition featuring a shortlist of submissions, during the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial. The exhibition will be open from October 1, 2015, to January 3, 2016. The aim of the exhibition is to spark discussion around the design of a Center for Architecture, Design and Education in Chicago, and highlight the city’s legacy of architectural leadership.
