For many years, women in architecture received little credit for what they accomplished. They often hit a glass ceiling as well, not being taken on as partners at well-known firms.
But in the 21st century, women are taking larger roles, often running their own firms and designing more buildings that impact the Chicago skyline and the city’s built environment. This virtual tour highlights designs by local women architects located near the CAC, some famous and some not as well known.
Take a 45-minute live, virtual tour with CAC docent Mary Jo Hoag on June 30 or July 5 to discover stunning buildings designed by female architects. Highlights include the Equitable Building, Aqua Tower, Vista Tower and more.
