Who Builds Your Architecture? was part of an exhibition series in which the Department of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago enlisted contemporary architects and designers to organize installations that investigate critical issues within their practices. For this installation, Who Builds Your Architecture? (WBYA?) presented research related to migrant workers and the global construction industry. The exhibition was divided into two parts: one part looked broadly at the construction process through a drawing of a fictional transnational project. The second part examines specific structural components from buildings in four major cities.
