CourseGraphic Few cities in the world have been dramatically transformed and shaped by architects more than Chicago - from its rebuilding after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 to the modernization following WWII which made it the epicenter of Mid Century Modern. OLLI members who are docents from the Chicago Architecture Foundation will lead you through the forces and personalities that established the path for Chicago’s future, to the role Chicago’s architects play in developing the skylines around the world today. The study group will focus on in-depth videos of key Chicago architects coupled with guest lectures and two walking tours to see the very buildings that represent the major shifts in building technology and style. Learn for yourself why so many visitors from around the world visit Chicago to learn about our rich architectural heritage. Note: This study group is a repeat of the fall 2017 study group of the same title.
