Explore Chicago's international, modern and postmodern movements, from the powerful, minimalist work of Mies van der Rohe's to contemporary styles that incorporate new, environmentally-sustainable technology. A great 2 hour tour for architecture buffs as well as anyone with a simple interest in the buildings of Chicago.

Learn about post-WWII developments and the impact of technological and zoning changes. Admire the stainless steel cladding on the Inland Steel Building, the whimsical post-modern designs of the Harold Washington Library and 190 S. LaSalle, and contemporary buildings like One South Dearborn, Blue Cross-Blue Shield and the Art Institute's Modern Wing.
