My dad is an architect. I was dragged on all kinds of architectural tours as a kid, and that hasn’t changed now that I’m adult. Whenever my parents come to visit Chicago, we end up spending an afternoon on some sort of architectural expedition. About half the time my dad comes up with a random place that he wants to see, and we drive around looking for it. The rest of the time, we end up doing a more formal tour–usually through the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It’s a Chicago, IL based non-profit organization that is “devoted to celebrating and promoting Chicago as a center of architectural innovation.” It all started in 1966 when community members banded together to save the Glessner House (we already did that tour) from demolition. That eventually led to the founding of the Chicago Architecture Foundation, which was then a founding member of the Association of Architecture Organizations.
While I’ll admit to getting a little bored on most architectural tours, I have to say that the Chicago Architecture Foundation does an amazing job. Their boat tours are one of the top tourist activities in the city, and they also offer walking, bus, train, bike, and Segway options. Add the tours with the Foundation’s exhibitions and programs, and you get nearly half a million for the organization’s annual total audience. That’s a massive number of people that the Chicago Architecture Foundation can inspire “to participate in the building of vibrant communities and to demand the highest standard in urban design.” If you’d like to be a part of that, check out the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Guest Relations Associate, an IT Specialist, and a Donor Relations & Special Events Associate.
