Summary

Features: Come out and experience the very essence of Art Deco while on the Downtown Chicago Sightseeing Tours. On the Downtown Chicago Deco tour, guests discover the opulent exteriors and interiors of the Roaring 20s Jazz Deco buildings as well as the classic finishes of Art Moderne buildings throughout the city. Learn about Chicago’s influence on the international arts movement, Art Deco, and trace the history of this short, but lively architectural heritage.  

During the time period between the two World Wars, an eclectic design style, that later became known as Art Deco, developed. Art Deco is the term often used to refer to a mix of styles spanning the 1920s and 1930s. Through the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression of the 1930s, Art Deco infused the everyday world with an elegance and cool sophistication. Simplicity and geometry are what mainly characterize Art Deco design and is most often combined with vibrant colors and simple shapes that celebrate the rise of commerce and technology. From luxurious objects made from exotic materials to mass produced, streamlined items. Chicago's Jazz Age architecture was simply called Modernistic when it was created in the 1920s, and then Moderne as it evolved into the Swing era of the 1930s. Whether starkly cubistic or smoothly streamlined, the new office and apartment buildings that redefined the skyline embodied the new artistic architectural language of building until the 1950s.
