Formerly known as the Chicago Architecture Foundation, the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) is a nonprofit cultural organization with tours, exhibitions, programs and events for all ages. Our mission is to inspire people to discover why design matters. The CAC’s galleries feature exhibits that reveal how Chicago architects continue to create innovative designs to build taller and smarter. The CAC’s newest exhibit, “Energy Revolution” explores how we can actively respond to the climate crisis by transforming our use of energy in urban environments. In the Chicago Gallery, visitors will discover all new exhibits on Chicago’s latest architecture projects, Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods and “Housing for a Changing Nation” offering creative, affordable home design concepts that break the mold. The Center is also a gateway to more than 50 CAC walking tours plus Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruises aboard Chicago’s First Lady.
