Chicago Architecture BiennialVisit Site

Feature: Design

We designed the third edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial ...and other such stories... website based on the Biennial's identity provided by ELLA. The homepage includes animated line drawing lock-ups, bringing to life the 2019 identity. The design includes a simplified weekly event viewing system, filters for upcoming events and an archive of past events as well as a map for visitors to use during the biennial to find partipating venues and partner locations.
