Spotlight on Italian Innovation & Sustainability

October 13 - November 11, 2015

The Italian Trade Agency is proud to be a Chicago Architecture Biennial Affiliate Partner and is excited to participate in its 2015 inaugural event, The State of the Art of Architecture.

ITA salutes Baukuh, Armin Linke, PIOVENEFABI, Stefano Boeri Architetti and Studio Albori who are among the Chicago Architecture Biennial’s more than 60 official selected participants representing over 30 countries.

ITA’s Spotlight on Italian Innovation and Sustainability, presented in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, launches October 13 and includes a series of exhibitions, lectures and film screenings related to the advancements and achievements of Italian architecture. The 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial will begin in October 2015 and run through January 2016. It is North America’s largest international survey of contemporary architecture, offering the world’s leading practitioners, theorists and commentators in the field the opportunity to exchange ideas as they take stock of architectural projects and experiments from around the globe.

As part of this project we are pleased to present here a selection of books on architecture and design by Italian publishers.
