The 7 Must-See Open House Chicago Gems
Frank, Mies and more.
We’ve all undressed a building with our eyes.
Looked it up and down, fantasized about how beautiful it is underneath.
Well, it’s time to finally find out: Open House Chicago is this weekend, offering behind-the-scene access to our city’s most profound architectural treasures.
These are the seven must-see gems.
OHC is a self-led walkabout through our iron and steel city. One hundred and fifty buildings open to the public for 48 hours.
- Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie-style masterpiece in Hyde Park
- Rooftop access to the city’s oldest members-only club
- A curious pink building that was once part of the North Side’s grandest resort
There are four more in our guide.
We’ve included an added bonus, too: Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House as you’ve never seen it before.
This weekend only.
So pack up the tripod and ready your best VSCO Cam filters.
We’ll see you out there.
