Furniture Objects By Architects Pop-Up #FOBA

Furniture Objects By Architects Pop-Up #FOBA

In conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial and AIA Chicago, Architecture Is Fun transformed an empty storefront into a pop-up of Functional Objects By Architects (FOBA). Inspired by museum-minded concepts of open storage, the architecture took form as industrial shelving with a straightforward layout, branded wall graphics and a curated collection; all of which turned a generic gallery into a design destination.

Form Follows Beauty

Form Follows Beauty

Form Follows Beauty, was presented in a fall PechaKucha by our very own Peter Exley, FAIA. Listen as Peter speaks about the relationship between art, design, architecture, lines, curves, and sensuality as well as the feminine form. Peter shows and tells – chit chatting about his artwork, created using what many would consider an unconventional tool.
