Chicago is such a beautiful place in all shapes and forms, and its architecture is on top of the list. It’s why Open House Chicago is one my favorite annual events in the city because it allows us locals to get a closer look of the finest buildings across the Chicagoland. If you’re like us, then you know you need a camera (or phone, it’s 2017) on hand to capture everything you see.
The Chicago Architecture Foundation opened the doors to more than 200 spaces this year. The annual event gives free access to anyone who has ever wondered what the inside of a building looked like. With locations scattered from the Loop to Garfield Park and West Ridge, there’s no way to see every single building in one weekend. But, that gives us plenty of room to see more sites for many years to come.
Rain and clouds didn’t stop attendees this year to catch a glimpse of these unique spaces from skyscrapers to houses. The Loop this year had over a dozen places open including the new 150 N. Riverside skyscraper and the LondonHouse Chicago rooftop bar. The incredible views from each building instantly make you realize how many great buildings the city has to offer.
