One of our great guests over the years is the Tribune’s Architecture Critic Blair Kamin. With several exciting renovation projects underway and the new 606 Trail once again proving the visionary leadership of Chicago in regard to green space, we thought it was time to take stock of this city’s rich architectural history and standing. We also enlisted the expertise of architect and professor Mark Pearson and Karen Kice, Neville Bryan Assistant Curator, Department of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago.
