We may have missed the very first year of OHC, but have been regulars ever since. Open House Chicago is a great program organized by the Chicago Architecture Foundation that opens the doors of hundreds of buildings across the city for a big weekend of architectural indulgence. It’s very cool to see different corners of famous buildings in the Loop, but even better, I think, is the kick in the pants to get into the neighborhoods. This year, it was probably the churches of Ukrainian Village that made the biggest impression on me.
