Housed in the 1904 Santa Fe Building designed by Daniel Burnham, the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s ArchiCenter features temporary exhibits as well as a permanent display entitled Chicago: You Are Here. This exhibit highlights the defining structures of the city, such as the Sears Tower and the Illinois and Michigan Canal, as well as the people who built them. The display incorporates a scale model of downtown and recordings of Chicago-related sounds, like the crowds at Wrigley Field. The ArchiCenter also offers world-renowned architectural tours and a gift shop selling photography books, Frank Lloyd Wright merchandise, and unusual toys.
