Chicago is the place where the skyscraper was born. Together with New York modern architecture started in Chicago at the end of the 19th century.

Today Chicago features a great variety of all kinds of buldings, but it is definitely one of the places to go when you want to see the evolution of the skyscraper. I had the opportunity to participate in a tour from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, which gave a quick overview from the late 19th century to WW2. These pictures shall try to give you a small glimpse on Chicago’s Architecture.
