November, 2015 – (CHICAGO)
The exhibit - "New Chicago Architecture" opened November 12 at 322 South Michigan Avenue, highlighting new Architecture and Urban Planning projects that continue Chicago's rich tradition of leading contemporary design. Curated by Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, the landmark exhibition and book is organized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
SALTANS ARCHITECTS is honored to be one of the firms featured in this extensive exhibition, with the inclusion of their Skolkovo Technopark District D2 Residential Area project. “The scope of the exhibition,” states Narkiewicz-Laine, “is nothing less than remarkable. Some of the world’s greatest design visionaries, thinkers and builders are contributing to Chicago’s current, but long-standing legacy, as the world’s first city of modern architecture. These are, in fact, some of Chicago’s best new buildings in decades. The exhibition demonstrates the one-of-a-kind design exuberance and design quality that other cities could only envy, but should also emulate in making our world cities more humane and robust centers of culture and commerce.”
After Chicago, the exhibition travels to Milan, Athens, Hong Kong, and other cities inside Asia and Europe. A 450-page book published by Metropolitan Arts Press, entitled New Chicago Architecture, accompanies the exhibition with a publication date in December.
