Thanks to the unfortunate event that was the Great Chicago fire in 1871, the city became a blank slate for ambitious architects and the first ever skyscraper.
Chicago is debatably the most influential architecture city in the world. The city boasts the invention of the high-rise, steel-frame towers, and the creation of the Chicago School of architecture, known for steel-framed, yet ornate towers, and Second Chicago School, a modernist movement based on the work of Mies van der Rohe.
In the BlockCities Chicago Collection, we've included local and international icons such as the CNA Center, 150 N Michigan, and the Willis Tower--Chicago's tallest and most iconic tower.
You can build generative versions of these buildings or collect "the Classics," BlockCities versions of your city favorites. Happy building!
