Signature Education Partnership with the Chicago Architecture FoundationAs the Biennial’s Signature Education Partner, The Chicago Architecture Foundation is developing an ambitious initiative for introducing young people to architecture. CAF will host a wide variety of innovative programs downtown and in Chicago’s neighborhoods – including field trips, teen studios, a design competition, and family guide resources – for students from Chicago Public Schools. CAF’s new program also introduces two Community Festival days for families with children ages 6-12 and expands teacher trainings to include the City Colleges of Chicago in order to reach 15,000 young people in 2017.
