Walking around Chicago, I’m always stumbling upon buildings I wish I knew more about. Assuming that I’m not the only one, I have begun an effort to make an archive of Chicago’s architecture – accessible to architecture experts and newcomers alike. BLUEPRINT: Chicago is my forum for sharing the stories of the buildings in Chicago, both famous and forgotten, which I feel are significant to our architectural landscape.

Every week I profile a different building in Chicago. If there is a particular building YOU are curious about, send me an email and I’ll go in search of answers.

I am always looking for new opportunities. If you know of something that might fit my interests please let me know. Click here to view my Linkedin Profile.
