Art In­sti­tute of Chicago

111 South/Michi­gan Ave

As well as its com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion of Im­pres­sion­ist, Post-Im­pres­sion­ist and North Amer­i­can works, the mu­seum is home to an ar­chi­tec­ture col­lec­tion whose main fo­cus is the struc­tural his­tory of Chicago. Mies van der Rohe and Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect Frank Lloyd Wright are two of the most fa­mous names rep­re­sented here, while the Mod­ern Wing, which opened in 2009, was de­signed by Ital­ian ar­chi­tect Renzo Pi­ano.
