Looking for a new way to learn about and explore Chicago's world class architecture? The Chicago Architecture Foundation is expanding their programming to include their first ever Scavenger Hunt. From 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday June 7, the event will offer the opportunity to see hidden architectural treasures, using a special map to guide yourself around the Loop, solving clues and completing tasks at various building sites. The hunt will include chances to discover four "mystery" behind-the-scenes experiences in some of Chicago's iconic buildings, too!

The three-hour scavenger hunt concludes with a reception at the Chicago Architecture Foundation from 4 p.m. through 6 p.m. with trivia and drinks provided by Goose Island. In addition to the free drink at the end, participants receive a t-shirt. The Scavenger Hunt costs $25 for non-CAF members, and $20 for members. Registration and check-in begins at noon at the CAF, located at 224 S. Michigan Ave. Advance registration is also open online here.
