The Chicago Pedway Tour: Interior Architecture
9 Have Dabbled
The other day a fellow asked if the Pedway symbol was a freemason symbol...um? No?
But I love that the Chicago Pedway is mysterious, even to the most seasoned of natives. When I ask Chicagoans if they have been it, the answer is usually a confused "I don't think so? Maybe?"
Come with me on the Chicago Pedway Tour and we will study this strange piece of urban infrastructure going under, around, over and through some of Chicago’s best buildings, without ever stepping foot outside.
You'll see great interiors on this tour. We'll discuss the ill-fated Thompson Center. We'll see gorgeous City Hall and our pride and joy – the Marshall Field Building. We’ll see Tiffany windows and talk history and architecture and all of those great things.
And we'll also talk about the Pedway. We'll dive deep into the map. We'll talk about planning (there isn't any) and governance (there isn't any!) and we'll talk about the Pedway as something deeper than hallways connecting buildings.
I've only lost a few people down there....nothing to fear...
