IN CHICAGO research studio launch

Kees Kaan’s Chair Complex Projects, in collaboration with ARCHEWORKS and ChicagoComplex is pleased to announce the launch of IN CHICAGO: a collaborative architecture and urbanism research studio that brings graduate students from TU Delft to Chicago.

Beginning of Fall 2015, the new studio will start a two-year objective to examine possibilities for Chicago: its growth, de-growth, infrastructure, and alternative visions for existing municipal plans. The Complex Projects chair at Department of Architecture – TU Delft has been investigating Chicago and the Midwest since 2012 as it presents a unique opportunity for both students and professionals to rethink and re-examine critical urban and regional regeneration models.

Mitesh Dixit (DOMAIN) will lead the studio. Andrew Balster, Executive Director of ARCHEWORKS and ChicagoComplex, will direct and oversee the daily work in Chicago.

Detailed information regarding the studio, lecture series, workshops, and participation in the Chicago Architecture Biennial will be announced in March.
