Website Design and Programming + Digital Tools

We designed the third edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial website. The Biennial produces a wide variety and volume of information. A key feature of the 2019 Biennial was the inclusion of partner organizations and community centered events, tying the biennial programming to schools and neighborhoods in Chicago. Our design successfully addressed the challenge of organizing this information by making content easily accessible to visitors while seamlessly maintaining a visual identity that spanned thephysical and digital. We also created an integrated tool that enabled Biennial staff to manage accreditations and events.
