Chicago is known worldwide for being one of the most iconic cities of modern architecture. Since its incident in 1871, the city boomed as an opportunity to start a new era of architecture. The era of skyscrapers. Architects from around the world migrated to the United States looking for new opportunities, opportunities that were born from problems on the old continent. One of those architects is Ludwig Mies Van De Rohe.
But do not be fooled by these elegant and orderly buildings, because like any city, Chicago contains intimate corners where human influences are notable.
