Technical tour: Architecture Tour with the Chicago Architecture Center (2 of 2)
On this tour, you'll learn about the city's beginnings on the Chicago River, its rebirth after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and its development into a commercial and cultural hub, all while viewing structures in the order they were built. These buildings—including the Page Brothers Building, Old Dearborn Bank, the Chicago Motor Club, the Carbide and Carbon Building, NBC Tower and more—tell the story of how architectural technology evolved over time. You'll see up close how each building has its own unique design, often reflecting the style that was popular or prevalent when it was constructed.
Please wear comfortable shoes. A jacket or umbrella may be needed, depending on weather.
Note: This tour runs twice, this one on Saturday, and the other on Wednesday, take your pick.
