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, learn, work and play.

Visit us and immerse yourself in our permanent installation, the Chicago Model, or stay right where you are and explore our current exhibitions online. In person or online, let us help you learn from the past, explore the present and imagine the future of architecture and urban design.
