Chicago is known for building some of the world’s first skyscrapers, but how have their designs and technologies changed over time?

This one hour walk through the Loop will show you several classic buildings. Each one is representative of major developments in architectural technology and design from 1872 to the present.

Beginning with the earliest masonry load-bearing structures, you will travel through time up to the 21st century super-tall highrises.

See how architects adapted building styles to meet the fashions of their era and used cutting-edge engineering to build taller than ever before. This tour is an enticing overview which introduces you to the bigger stories of Chicago architecture.

The Skyscraper Walk through Time walking tour is on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:30am and on Saturdays and Sundays at 3:30pm. Reservations are recommended.

The tour departs from the Atrium of the Santa Fe Building at 224 S. Michigan Ave. and lasts about two hours.
