What You Can Expect
Learn about post-WWII developments and the impact of technological and zoning changes. Admire the stainless steel cladding on the Inland Steel Building, the whimsical post-modern designs of the Harold Washington Library and 190 S. LaSalle, and contemporary buildings like One South Dearborn, Blue Cross-Blue Shield and the Art Institute's Modern Wing.
This tour was organised through the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the guides are volunteers so some are better than others. We found it extremely interesting but you would need an interest in architecture to enjoy this tour.
A must do! While we had admired many of the buildings we saw on the tour having the history of the Art Deco movement and the buildings explained was worth the cost. The tour guides are passionate about their subjects.
