This year marks the 25th anniversary of Archeworks, an educational institution founded by the late architect Stanley Tigerman and interior designer Eva Maddox. Its mission is to use the power of design to tackle social, cultural, and environmental challenges in Chicago. In 2019, coinciding with the significant anniversary and the passing of its co-founder, Archeworks closes one chapter as a school and opens a new one where the core mission continues in new focused formats.

As part of the exhibition Tatiana Bilbao Estudio: Unraveling Modern Living, Archeworks hosts conversations at the Graham Foundation with local practitioners connected to the mission of Archeworks to define new opportunities around the idea of collectivity in the city. This process will build upon the 25-year legacy of the institution addressing topics such as universal design and accessibility to community health, local food systems, and sustainable land use.

Archeworks mission is to use the power of design to challenge social, cultural and environmental challenges in Chicago. Founded in 1994 by architect Stanley Tigerman and designer Eva Maddox, Archeworks has collaborated with over 80 partners and completed more than 80 design projects in communities throughout Chicago. Past partners include community organizations, urban farms, advocacy groups, healthcare organizations, schools, municipalities, and cultural institutions. These collaborative design projects have addressed subjects ranging from universal design and accessibility to community health, local food systems, and sustainable land use.
