VIRTUAL PRACTICES: The Impact of Technology and Transience on New Histories in Practice

How have today's architectural practices evolved? The economic models of building practices played an important historical role in the realization of design ideas – yet more often, the building product was given more attention than the practice behind the building. Early traditional models of practice were derived from pivotal moments in an architect's career after apprenticeship with legends in the field. From Frank Lloyd Wright working for Louis Sullivan, to Richard Neutra apprenticing with Frank Lloyd Wright, to Renzo Piano's tenure at Louis Kahn's office and later collaborations, how do these stories inform today's new models of practice? How do changing technology and priorities impact today's architectural practices? This event explores how virtual collaboration, co-working, and technology hacking models can help boost productivity, engage client bases, mitigate business and practice risks, and help to serve as a succession plan – while relating current practices with those of the past.

About the Chicago Architecture Biennial
The Chicago Architecture Biennial is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to creating an international forum on architecture and urbanism through the production of exhibitions and public programs. The manifestation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's vision for a major international architectural event and an outcome of the comprehensive cultural plan developed by Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, under the leadership of Michelle T. Boone, the inaugural 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennial was presented through the support of BP, and in partnership with the City of Chicago and the Graham Foundation. The second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) is the largest architecture and design exhibition in North America, showcasing the transformative global impact of creativity and innovation in these fields. This year's Biennial features over 141 practitioners from more than 20 countries addressing the 2017 theme "Make New History."
