    • "Since the early 20th century, Chicago has continually fostered young design talents and established itself as a pivotal center for the arts. To celebrate this historical lineage of design and the 25th anniversary of the Department of Architecture’s founding, Young Chicago looks at the community’s diverse body of contemporary designers—who are not yet represented in the collection—to showcase the city’s ever-growing talents in architecture, industrial design, graphic design, and fashion. In the coming year, works from these studios will become part of the collection in keeping with the newly expanded mission of the renamed Department of Architecture and Design."
