Future Firm designs spaces, big and small, for people to come together in new ways. Founded by Craig Reschke and Ann Lui in 2015, the Chicago-based architecture practice spans diverse scales: from pop-up exhibition spaces, to residential and commercial buildings, to urban and territorial speculations. Future Firm’s work has been exhibited at Storefront for Art & Architecture, New Museum’s Ideas City, and the Chicago Architecture Foundation and published in The Architect’s Newspaper, Chicago Architect, Mas Context and Newcity. Future Firm currently operates The Night Gallery, a nocturnal exhibition space on Chicago’s south side, which features video and film works by artists and architects from sunset to sunrise.
Craig Reschke is a registered architect and Designer-in-Residence in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His work on fast matter in landscape architecture was recently published in Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture (Routledge, 2018). Ann Lui is an architect and Assistant Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Ann recently co-edited Public Space? Lost and Found (SA+P/MIT Press, 2017) and was co-curator of the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 titled Dimensions of Citizenship.
