Learn about Contemporary style architecture with CAC docent Mike McMains!
Chicago has seen a lot of new construction in the 21st century, and there are several reoccurring themes in the design. Architectural styles are often terms defined by historians looking back on an era, so since we are living in this period today, we will call it Contemporary design.
This live, 45-minute virtual tour on May 26 or 31 with docent Mike McMains describes the influences of the Contemporary style, defines its characteristics and profiles several wonderful buildings from the last 20 years and their amazing architects.
