Walk into this office building and you will find informative panels explaining the history of the building and the many architects including Frank Lloyd Wright, who redesigned the interior. Definitely worth a look.

I have been to the Rookery Tours twice.One given by the Architectural Foundation and one by the Frank Lloyd foundation. You need to book in advance and it it very worthwhile. Each tour is very diffirent in the places you go in the Rookery.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
