Wrapping up the year in Chicago architecture

What good is a city that stays the same? When you are the city of broad shoulders, it’s important to keep an eye on what we wear. Chicago has always been a great architecture town. In 2014 we saw some modern changes, some adjustments to the old and robust discussions about what tomorrow may bring. This is a city that makes no small plans. And in 2014, that couldn’t ring more true. In studio to talk about 2014 for both architecture and infrastructure is Lee Bey. Lee is with the arts incubator at the University of Chicago. He’s also been an architecture writer for the Sun-Times and he worked under Mayor Daley in Chicago’s planning department. He serves on commissions and committees all over town and he used to write for wbez.org, with his popular blog “Beyond the Boat Tour.” (Photo: Flickr/Humansdevel)
