Open House Chicago 2014 Videos!

Presented by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Open House Chicago is a free, city-wide, behind-the-scenes look at many of the city’s great places and spaces. 150 buildings are chosen each year and include repurposed mansions, hidden rooms, sacred spaces, private clubs, iconic theaters, offices, hotels and more—all for free.

Since its inception in 2011, Access Contemporary Music has worked with the Architecture Foundation to “activate” four of the sites with music by commissioning composers to write music inspired by the spaces. We then have musicians in the spaces performing the music approximately every fifteen minutes during the day.
