Walking around Chicago, I’m always stumbling upon buildings I wish I knew more about. Assuming that I’m not the only one, I have begun an effort to make an archive of Chicago’s architecture – accessible to architecture experts and newcomers alike. BLUEPRINT: Chicago is my forum for sharing the stories of the buildings in Chicago, both famous and forgotten, which I feel are significant to our architectural landscape.
I’m always looking for new buildings to write about. If there is a particular building YOU are curious about, send me an email and I’ll go in search of answers.
