Estudio Teddy Cruz + Forman’s UCSD Cross-Border Community Station: A Public Space That Educates.

COURTESY ESTUDIO TEDDY CRUZ + FORMAN.

Seven commissioned exhibitors will feature in the U.S. Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, to open in May of next year. Each of the teams—selected by a curatorial group assembled by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Chicago—will contribute to a collective exhibition titled “Dimensions of Citizenship.”

“These seven teams represent the breadth of design practice today: from social to speculative; technical to theoretical,” the curators said in a statement.“They are united by researched-based methodologies and the drive to use that research to push boundaries—formal, disciplinary, and political.”

The seven exhibitors are as follows:

  • Amanda Williams & Andres L. Hernandez (Chicago, IL)
  • Design Earth (Cambridge, MA)
  • Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York, NY)
  • Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman (San Ysidro, CA)
  • Keller Easterling (New Haven, CT)
  • SCAPE (New York, NY)
  • Studio Gang (Chicago, IL)
