Chicago's Towering Architectural Achievements

Yesterday, CBS Sunday Morning ran a brief video on Chicago's architectural heritage and the conclusion of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, which closed Sunday until it's return in 2017. CBS' Anna Werner speaks with Studio Gang's Jeanne Gang and Chicago Architecture Biennial director Sarah Herda. 

Considered the birthplace of the modern skyscraper, the city has made architecture one of its main tourist attractions. On any given day, dozens of architecture tours wind through the city's waterways and streets. The buildings are considered works of art ... and their designers are treated as directors are in Hollywood.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial served to shine a spotlight on the city in 2015. Watch the video here. The Navy Pier Centennial and the Wrigley Field renovation will certainly contribute to the buzz in 2016. What else will the year hold for architecture in Chicago? Watch this space.
