Chicago Architecture 101 (Part 3) - Art Deco

About this event

Chicago is the architectural capital of the United States. It was the birthplace of the skyscraper, led so many architectural movements, and houses innumerable design masterpieces. "Chicago Architecture 101" on Heygo is a six-part series of 45-minute tours chronologically profiling the major architectural styles found downtown describing their influences and characteristics by showcasing beautiful buildings. All these styles build off of each other, so I hope you can see all six parts in the series. "Art Deco" is the third part of the six-part "Chicago Architecture 101" series. The Roaring 20s had a booming economy, and through more widespread usage of the automobile, an ability to travel that had never before existed. A new style of architecture was needed to celebrate this prosperous era, and that happened with exuberant Art Deco.
