Join us at our Biennial Family Festival from noon to 4pm! We invite families with children ages 5-12 to come learn about architecture and design through hands-on activities.

Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand Ave.

The community festival day at Navy Pier on Saturday, November 2 will explore the Biennial’s theme “…and other such stories”. Participants can learn about Chicago’s heritage as the birthplace of the skyscraper, and design their own tall structures. This include a free make-and-take project.

We will be stationed indoors in front of the Pier People mural, located on the south side of the building, directly across from Ben & Jerrys. 

As the signature education partner for the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Chicago Architecture Center is committed to providing access to the Biennial’s themes and deepening engagement through place-based programs for young people and families across Chicago.
