One thing that sets Chicago apart is its striking architecture. As a city that has rebuilt itself, and is constantly building and growing, it’s clear that architecture rests at the heart of Chicago’s culture.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) helps organize events like the Chicago architecture tour and work with over 700,000 people a year. 20,000 of them being kids who partake in their engineering and architecture classes. High school students are even allowed to apply for fellowships and work with CAF on specific projects.

In Shelley Stern Grach’s latest Civic Chat: Networking Our Neighborhoods, Gabrielle Lyon of the Chicago Architecture Foundation explores Chicago’s rich connection to its architecture and explains how these programs are making Chicago better day by day.
