This Sunday, join Forgotten Chicago for a unique architectural and historical walking tour across Chicago’s Gold Coast and Near North Side. Offered for the first time since 2012, this particular group tour will explore existing, demolished, and never realized projects by the famed Marina City architect Bertrand Goldberg as well as examine how the greater neighborhood evolved from a "wasted ghetto" to today’s thriving high-rent shopping and dining district.
The tour is expected to touch on sites such as Goldberg’s Walton Gardens — currently in the midst of a less than historically sensitive remodeling project — as well as a previously unknown Goldberg work re-discovered by Forgotten Chicago researchers on East Oak Street in 2013. The roughly two-and-half hour tour will depart from Loyola University Museum of Art on Sunday at noon, rain or shine. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased here.
