How Your Membership Helps Others

What our members are saying

Living in Chicago is like living in a museum of architecture.

There’s almost every type and style you can imagine. My CAF membership is an all access pass to the museum and allows me to discover all of the city’s stories.

Graeme, CAF Member

I became a member after living in Chicago for about a year.

I had done all the normal touristy things and wanted a way to learn more about my new city. Being a member of CAF makes me feel much more connected to and integrated into Chicago. It makes the big city a bit more manageable!

Annie, CAF Member

CAF elevates the understanding of design.

They are teaching a new generation how to solve problems.
