Introducing: AIA CHICAGO MADE
AIA CHICAGO LAUNCHES EXHIBITION SERIES
To celebrate the smaller projects designed by architects, AIA Chicago will display functional objects designed by Chicago architects on a rotating basis. Launched in early March, the exhibition showcases a range of talent that exists in our community.
"We'd like to remind those who come through our offices that architects are mutifaceted," sayd Zurich Esposito, executive director of AIA Chicago and whose office door opens to the exhibition space. "They are also often making objects by hand or in collaboration with local fabricators and craftspeople. They are using their talents and ingenuity in ways that the public doesn't often think about when it comes to architecture."
The first object displayed is Vojo Narancic, FAIA's ONA chair (pictured below)—a voluptuous furnishing that demonstrates the strength and flexibility of the carbon fiber material. The chair will be on display through June 2016; stay tuned for more announcements.
