In search of Chicago’s architectural treasures

by Shannon Hammond

Chicago may be known as “The Second City”, but its architecture is anything but second class.  From the first modern skyscraper to Daniel Burnham and the World’s Columbian Exposition; from the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright to the modern marvels created by Mies van der Rohe, Chicago has always been at the forefront of innovative architecture.  This path will take you from the south side to the north (with a brief divergence west) and will showcase some of the most beautiful - and photogenic - architectural and historical spots in the city.  And every now and then, we’ll fast forward to present day to appreciate what current designers are bringing to the landscape of the city.
