Best Architecture Walking Tour for Design Lovers

A creative tour of Chicago architecture designed for curious people.

Join fellow UChicago Alumni for this unique 90-minute downtown walking tour. We will learn about architectural styles through their connections with technology and culture. All arts are a reflection of an age. Styles in architecture, graphic design, fashion and pop culture have similar qualities when they come from the same era. During this tour we'll discuss architectural styles’ deeper connections with history and consider how advancements in technology and engineering shape the buildings and structures around us.

NOTE: The 10am tour has SOLD OUT. We have added additional tours for the Alumni at 12:00pm and 1:30pm. Hope you'll join us!

The tour includes:
- Shared iPads with historic images and videos
- Engaging tour guide commentary
- Special gifts
- Discounted flat-rate parking at Grant Park North Garage ($15)
