Opening on 16 September, the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial, Make New History, features contributions by many Columbia GSAPP faculty and alumni as well as events organized by the school in collaboration with the Biennial Artistic Directors Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee.

Making Books Now
Artistic Directors' Symposium
Friday, September 15, 1pm
In conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Columbia GSAPP presents a discussion among architects who have reengaged book-making on their own terms to explore the printed book as a vehicle for producing and expressing architectural thought. A series of conversations explores how practicing architects are making new history by making books, by approaching bookmaking as an opportunity to frame their practices, and even thinking of it as an architectural project in and of itself.

Moderated by GSAPP’s Director of Publications James Graham, the event features a series of 20-minute conversations:
Amale Andraos (WORKac) with Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee (JohnstonMarklee)
Hilary Sample and Michael Meredith (MOS) with Florian Idenburg (SO-IL)
Benjamin Aranda ('99 M.Arch) (Aranda\Lasch) with David Benjamin ('05 M.Arch) (The Living)
Sarah Dunn ('94 M.Arch) (Urban Lab) with Keith Krumwiede
Tatiana Bilbao with Freek Persyn (51N4E)
Go Hasegawa with Kersten Geers (OFFICE KGDVS)
Reto Geiser (MG&Co.) with James Graham
