Chicago – April 8, 2011 – The Chicago Architecture Foundation may be best known for the architecture river cruise, but five new tours have just been added to their roster of more than 85 different tours.

Vice to Nice: Transformation of the South Loop
Characters, corruption, renewal, and transformation – that’s the story of the south Loop. Hear stories of how this formerly seedy area has become a bustling area full of residents and students. The streets of the south loop showcase architecture ranging from Romanesque to contemporary, designed by famous and little-known architects.  The buildings reveal stories of colorful politicians and reformers.

Synagogues by Bus
An offshoot of the popular “Churches by Bus,” this tour explores Jewish history, traditions, and architecture. Each congregation’s worship needs are reflected in the various decorative and structural elements of the architecture.  May 1 tour departs at 12:30 and includes Anshe Emet, Temple Sholom, and Emanuel.

Preservation and Pubs
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Landmarks Illinois, this new tour explores issues surrounding historic preservation.  Docents touch on the reasoning behind preservation and how it shapes the future of Chicago.  A guest of Landmarks Illinois will greet the tour to discuss the history and character of each location.

Friday, April 29     
west route: tour ends at the Sky-Ride Lounge, 105 W. Van Buren       

Friday, May 13
