Mitä teet

What does Michael Jackson’s Thriller have to do with the design of a post-modern skyscraper? Or Andy Warhol’s soup cans with modernism? The Best Architecture Walking Tour for Design Lovers is a creative tour of Chicago architecture, designed for curious people. You will learn about architectural styles through their connections with technology and pop culture. You’ll look at lots of gorgeous buildings while expanding your understanding of architectural styles and Chicago history, right in the heart of downtown Chicago. Tour starts at the Michigan Ave Bridge, where the city began, and finishes at the new Maggie Daley Park. This tour explores a particular concept in architecture. All arts are a reflection of an age. Styles in creations like architecture, graphic design, fashion design, and pop culture have similar qualities when they come from the same era. In order to learn how to contextualize and identify architecture, this tour compares buildings with works from other media like these. Your tour guide will also explain how advancements in technology and engineering have shaped building designs.
