Take Me to the River


Take Me to the River: Building Chicago’s New Waterfront

The Chicago River: it’s an industrial highway, the city’s storm drain, and a leisure landscape. Can these realities continue to co-exist?

The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s latest exhibition explores the future of the Chicago River and its city.

Beautiful highlights river views.

Livable investigates the river as stormwater pipe.

Fun delves into recreation on the river.

Public explores the riverfront as parkland.

Take Me to the River is open now in CAF’s Lecture Hall Gallery.


Take Me to the River is made possible through the generous support of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, and the Great Lakes Commission.
