Social Architecture: Bronzeville

@ 47th (CTA Green)

600 E 47th St, Chicago IL 60653

Opening Sunday, October 6th, from 1PM - 3PM

On view through Wednesday, December 31st

A critical exploration of urban space exploring how space & place intersect with memory & justice.

This event is presented as part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial.

What is the “social architecture” that holds communities together? How does memory define a place? Who makes culture today? How is prejudice embedded in urban space? What can policy-makers learn from Black power, resilience, and joy?

Explore this and more on a critical walking tour exploring the past and present of Bronzeville. From Black Metropolis, to vice district, to queer mecca, to a modern-day font of culture, inspiration, and entrepreneurship – Bronzeville has something for everyone.


“…a living culture is forever changing, without losing itself as a framework and context of change. The reconstruction of a culture is not the same as its restoration.” ― Jane Jacobs
