The Modern Era Tour

Much of the general attention on Chicago architecture focuses on the skyscrapers of the late-19th and early-20th centuries or on the Prairie-style residential designs of such architects as Walter Burley Griffin, George Maher, or Frank Lloyd Wright. Often overlooked are the landmark buildings from Chicago's so-called Modern Era, beginning about 1935 when construction resumed during the Great Depression.

This tour features a variety of more contemporary architecture by such prominent designers Bruce Goff, Keck & Keck, Andre Rebori, and the master modernist, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. it also includes several significant sites and structures, such as a recording studio for early blues and rock n' roll music and the test site for the first, self-sustaining controlled nuclear reaction.
