Chicago is world-famous for its architecture from many eras. The Art Deco style coincided with the biggest building boom in the city’s history. We have a rich collection of buildings from that era and in that extravagant style. In Chicago’s densely packed Loop we will explore eight key examples of Art Deco architecture.
From one of the earliest examples of Art Deco commercial buildings to the fully mature skyscrapers, from modest buildings to massive, iconic structures, we will experience the grand sweep of the Roaring 20s and its heady manifestation in architecture. On our tour, we will enjoy some of the most beautiful Art Deco buildings in the world in Chicago’s historic downtown.
