Contribute to the Biennial Society

The Biennial Society is a Chicago Architecture Biennial affinity group of architecture and design enthusiasts, collectors and civic leaders who share an interest in the intersection of civics, arts, culture and architecture.  

Members of the Biennial Society enjoy exclusive, members-only access, experiences, and events with artists, architects, designers, curators, and cultural leaders. Member benefits are designed to reflect the dynamic issues connecting Chicago to creativity, innovation, and contemporary global concerns in the built environment.

We invite you to join the Biennial Society and become a part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial’s future while sharing in exciting and meaningful programs of interest.

For more information about the 2021 program, please visit the CAB website,

The 2021 Biennial Edition, The Available City, will offer opportunities for conversations about the intersection of architecture and design with such universal issues as health, sustainability, equity, and racial justice presented across online platforms, outdoor locations, and as circumstances permit, at venues across the city.
