Architecture projects to see in and around Chicago


Hey guys. I’m European and I’m going to Chicago for a week this summer. Do you have any recommendations of architectural projects I need to see while I’m there. There is of course the obligatory Frank L wright houses, and I might be renting a car a drive down to Kansas  City and see Steven Holls Nelson Atkins Museum of Art. 

Your answer is appreciated.

drums please, Fab?

If you're driving to K.C. check out the Farnsworth House in (plain old) Plano.  It's sort of on the way just a bit West of Chicago.  You need a reservation to see it, though, so don't just stop by and expect to get in.

Chicago's a great city!  This is a bit touristy but I enjoyed the river boat architectural tour, you get some nice history and see a lot of stuff from the calm of the river.
