This fun and creative Chicago architecture walking tour puts architecture in context of the arts and pop culture. 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 Since Sliced Bread is a creative tour of Chicago architecture, designed for curious people. You will learn about architectural styles through their connections with technology and culture, including pop culture. We’ll look at lots of eye candy while expanding our understanding of architectural styles and Chicago history. It’s a very visual and interactive tour. 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. We will compare architecture with contemporaneous works other media to help us learn how to identify architectural styles and most all all, to understand their deeper connections with history. We will also consider how the advancements in technology and engineering have shaped buildings. Why is this the “best” architecture walking tour since sliced bread? The fun and creative educational approach of this Chicago architecture walking tour makes it unlike any other architecture tour in the city. We know it’s absurd to call anything the “best.” We say this simply because the tour is the best for Detours-minded folks. The tour appeals to both Chicago locals and visitors. People well-versed in art history will enjoy it, as well as tour guests new to looking at art and architecture. You will learn about various architectural styles, both by looking at buildings in front of us and at images and video on shared iPads. This architecture walking tour goes south of the Michigan Avenue bridge. This is a route where many people walk but rarely look up. We conclude at the very new urban playground of Maggie Daley Park. Inclusions *Shared iPads with historic photos and video clips *Engaging tour guide commentary *Special gifts

Our walking tours and bus tours of Chicago history and culture bring people to explore stories and places locals don't even know. We give tours of interior architecture, historic bars, jazz and blues, and Chicago neighborhoods. Chicago architecture, history and culture intrinsically connect on our walking tours and bus tours of Chicago. We are proud to be one of few Chicago tour companies with a solid five stars on both Yelp and TripAdvisor. Our passionate, knowledgeable tour guides go beyond trivia to get you thinking about our relation to cities, space, and buildings. We share ideas on how architecture affects us psychologically. We also take moments to simply indulge in the visual experience of architecture. Because of the cultural angle of our walking tours and bus tours, they are great for anyone from architecture experts to those new to Chicago architecture. All our tours use architecture to tell stories that reflect the human side of Chicago history. You will explore, learn and interact with multimedia, each other, and the city around us. We work with private groups, student groups and we also offer walking tours to the public six days a week. We hope you will join us on a Chicago architecture tour for an unforgettable cultural experience.
