At the Chicago Architecture Foundation we want to help you understand the topics, ideas and people that shape our cities and our world.

Our exhibitions encourage visitors to discover spaces, places and structures that impact the way we live. Explore our exhibitions online or in person to learn about the past, present and future of architecture and urban design.

In summer 2018, with the opening of the Chicago Architecture Center, visitors can discover exciting new interactive exhibits, including an expanded Chicago Model and a stunning display of model skyscrapers from Chicago and around the world.
