During this six-day workshop, participants will examine the skyscraper as a physical and cultural concept. Educators will explore a new theme each day, through lively lectures from scholars, field studies and humanities readings. The workshop takes place at the new Chicago Architecture Center—a museum with two floors of fascinating exhibits and gateway to more than 85 awe-inspiring boat, walking and bus tours.
