Ongoing Exhibitions

American Framing
Through July 16, 2022
Wrightwood 659, a 1920s building transformed by architect Tadao Ando into a new exhibition space, presents a reinstallation of the U.S. pavilion for the 2021 International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. This exhibit marks the first time the project will be displayed in the United States. Curated by architects and professors Paul Andersen and Paul Preissner, American Framing is a three-story abstraction of a wood-framed building in homage to the national history of timber construction, a building practice which was popularized in America in the 19th century, and is still widely used in new construction today. With the structure are photographs documenting the history of timber housing in America, newly commissioned photographs from Daniel Shea and Chris Strong, and scale models of historic buildings researched and constructed by students at the University of Illinois Chicago School of Architecture.
