Attempting the Impossible: Catching All 85 Chicago Architecture Tours in Just One Year


If you live in Chicago like this writer, or even just visiting every once in a while, you’re probably constantly saying to yourself, “I should really get out and see architecture stuff.” There’s so many tours and exhibits here, but unfortunately one always returns to, “But who has the time?” The answer to that question is Jennifer Lucente, who works for the Chicago Architecture Foundation and has decided to attempt to take all 85 of the tours offered by her organization within the year. It all falls under the banner, “Around Chicago in 85 Tours Challenge,” and Lucente will be documenting all of it on all the major outlets, from a (not yet very busy) blog to her (thus far very active) Twitter feed. Here’s a quick description:

From January through December 2010, I have challenged myself to take all of the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s 85 tours. I’ll be walking, biking, busing, boating, and Segway-ing all around the city and surrounding areas learning about the rich architectural history of Chicago. All of the tours I’m taking are open to the public so come on out and join me!
