Until further notice, all CAC walking tours are suspended and the Center at 111 E. Wacker Dr. is closed, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines from the State of Illinois.

CAF’s ambitious new exhibition features 50 transformative proposals for building a better Chicago, presented by 50 of the city’s top architecture and design firms.

In celebration of CAF’s 50th anniversary, we asked 50 designers to create transformative proposals aimed at improving the quality of life for residents in each of Chicago’s 50 wards. Seeking inspiration and answers about how we might grow, enhance and improve present conditions, the designers studied all elements of our city—streets, bridges, buildings, waterways, vacant lots and everything in between.
