Building Chicago tells a story of the growth and transformation of Chicago’s culture and built environment. The blog began as a platform for narratives on iconic Chicago buildings by a Roosevelt University honors class, Building Chicago: Commercial Real Estate and the Urban Core offered through the Heller College of Business Administration. The blog has since expanded to examine the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, Planning Chicago and the Auditorium and Wabash Buildings. The latest addition is a multi part essay Sweet Home Chicago: From the Delta to Bronzeville.
