New project documents hyper-local history through architecture

Chicago has an abundance of iconic cityscape imagery. Architecture buffs know there's much more to explore than what's on the city skyline or in the downtown area but you have to know where to look. That's the goal of a new, online architecture survey: Chicago Architecture Data. Through photography, data collection and a user-friendly Website, Chicago Architecture Data and its sister-site, Chicago Patterns, seek to tell a visual story of the history of Chicago. John Morris, the man behind the project, and Chicago Patterns contributor, Andi Marie, join us for details on their work. Photo: Flickr/ influxed (John Morris)
