Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the McCormick House!

Learn about the history and unique design of the McCormick House (1952) by the legendary architect Mies van der Rohe on this docent-led tour, incorporating the current interactive installation recently featured on WGN News.

The McCormick House is a single-family home designed in 1952 by Mies van der Rohe, one of the great architects of the 20th Century. It is one of only three residences designed and built by Mies in the United States – and one of only two open to the public. The current playful installation by the duo Could Be Architecture recreates the house’s original 1952 floor plan and invites interactions such as by hanging your coat, trying out the furniture, playing chess, tasting a treat in the kitchen, and more.
