The Chicago Architecture Biennial isn't the only game in town for architecture buffs to binge on free tours next month: Open House Chicago is back with opportunities for you to explore over 200 architecturally-significant buildings around Chicago for free in one weekend.
The Chicago Architecture Foundation's fifth-annual public architecture event, Open House Chicago, just released its list of over 200 sites that will be open to the public for two days in October for free guided and self-guided tours and epic sight-seeing.

This year the Open House Chicago website includes an interactive itinerary planner and a map of sites you can search by neighborhood.
Open House Chicago runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 17 and 18 at locations around Chicago.
