Editorial 2—What’s Your Story?
Taking the local flows of people, goods, and capital as a starting point, the Chicago Architecture Biennial brings to the fore the role of storytelling and imagination in the issues confronting architecture and urbanism today. One thing becomes clear: community is key. Our story at NESS represents a collective imagination: it is full of collaborations, countries, voices, typologies, and different forms of inhabiting both on and off the page. This editorial features a variety of views and asks what role biennials play in the engagement of architecture with larger issues such as gender, politics, ethics, economy, ecology, technology, art, and more.
