Hyde Park Architecture Tour by Brick of Chicago
Hyde Park has long been hailed for its architectural treasures – on this walking tour we’ll look deeper into the details that make up some of Hyde Park’s most remarkable buildings, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, Barry Byrne’s St Thomas the Apostle, and Edward Dart’s Augustana Lutheran Church. We’ll dive into the history of Hyde Park (the town and the neighborhood) and the architecture of mansions, apartments, and institutional buildings.
About Brick of Chicago Tours: Chicago is a city built out of brick, of course, along with stone, wood, glass, and steel.
But Chicago is also built of so much more: It is built of history, people, stories, policy, and fashions, marvels of engineering and forces of nature.
On a Brick of Chicago neighborhood walking tour, you’ll learn how all of these elements come together to make Chicago one of the most interesting and dynamic cities in the world. Afterwards, you’ll never look at the built world (or the humble brick) the same way again!
