Where can you look at hundreds of different Chicago buildings in one place, as rendered by a sketch club of great distinction? Why, on this remarkable website created by the Art Institute of Chicago, of course. This collection brings together over 4,500 images created by the Chicago Architectural Sketch Club and is remarkable in the way it documents the city's growth (vertical and otherwise) over the past century or so. Visitors can explore the items here by title, city, state, or even creator. It's also fair to say that Chicago isn't the only place covered here, as the celebrated Sketch Club also fanned out across the United States and the globe. All in all, there's truly something for everyone with an interest in the built environment and the site warrants bookmarking for repeated exploration.
