Women have been architects for decades, but until recently, their achievements often went unacknowledged. Join us as we travel through the Loop to view new buildings and landscape projects designed by women.

About 50 percent of architecture school students are female, but many never embark on a full-time career in architecture. At the same time, women architects are leading the way in reshaping Chicago's skyline. This tour highlights the work of these women and ends at an architect’s office, where we will talk with women about the challenges they face in their field and the satisfaction their work gives them.
