City Works, previously shown at the 13th International Architecture Biennale in Venice (2012), has returned to the city of its origin. The exhibition re-envisions a series of urban environments that are typical for Chicago in order to examine alternatives to the way architecture engages the city. It is a collaborative effort by five teams – David Brown, Alexander Eisenschmidt, Studio Gang, Stanley Tigerman, and UrbanLab – determined to find potentials for spatial, material, programmatic, and organizational invention within the city. Curated by Eisenschmidt, the installation involves a large model of a visionary Chicago as well as an encompassing panorama drawing that creates a visual backdrop.
