“The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation”

  • 01 Mar 2020
  • Chicago Architecture Center

 The CAC is proud to offer “The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation” workshop for teachers this upcoming summer, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Landmarks of American History and Culture. This FREE workshop is open to K-12 educators throughout the nation, and I am hoping you could share this within your network.


During this week long workshop, participants will investigate the skyscraper as a physical and cultural construct. Skyscrapers will serve as a lens for studying innovation; urbanization; segregation; labor; gender; and civic identity. We will address how the rise of the skyscraper stimulated and reflected changes in American life, and how these buildings continue to evolve and shape the urban experience in cities around the world.
