'Forgotten' Suburban Architecture

New, 1 comment

Got an appetite for neglected and/or under-appreciated suburban corporate architecture? Then Forgotten Chicago's your ticket to adventure. This coming Sunday, the urban history enthusiasts with the best intel on Chicago's faded, quirky past are leading a "Corporate Kings" bus tour of North Suburban office parks, airplane hangars, pharmaceutical plants, and midcentury housing developments that pushed the architectural envelope from the 1920s-present. The tour will feature works by Stanley Tigerman, SOM, Perkins & Will, Don Erickson, and others. [Forgotten Chicago via Prairie Mod, Photo: Kinetic Chemicals, Inc. circa 1945]
