In a large-scale, central installation at the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the likes of 6a architects, Barozzi Veiga, Kéré Architecture, MOS, OFFICE KGDVS, and Sergison Bates—among others—have designed and constructed sixteen five meter-tall contemporary iterations of the renowned 1922 Chicago Tribune Tower design contest.

Located in the Sidney R. Yates Hall of the Chicago Cultural Center—part of the spaces central to the this year’s event—Vertical City is a a contemporary reimagining of one of architectural history’s most significant competitions. Whereas the original competition required participants to submit renderings in perspective, each drawn from a single vantage point, the 2017 iteration spatializes sixteen models in the form of large-scale installations.
