The continuous reinvention of Chicago’s Palace of the People (aka the Chicago Cultural Center)

I just came across this lovely article by Iker Gil in this week’s Archinect, and I thought it was so loaded with great Chicago details that I wanted to maximize the number of people who’d read it.

It originally ran in the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial blog, and contains a wonderful history of the building and the people -including Tim Samuelson and Sis Daley – who helped save and reuse it.  Enjoy!
