Illinois Bicentennial - 200 Great Places Favorite Architecture
Illinois Bicentennial - 200 Great Places is a list of buildings and other structures identified as the most popular works of architecture in Illinois. To commemorate the Bicentennial of Illinois' statehood in 2018, the Illinois component of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) premiered the 200 Illinois Great Places, selected by a state-wide committee of architects, local officials and other organizations (including the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), and Landmarks Illinois) in an effort to showcase the best of Illinois. This committee included architect Mike Jackson, former chief architect and Preservation Services Division manager of the State of Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. The National Historic Landmarks and National Register of Historic Places were used to develop the list of significant places in Illinois and included a review of the national, regional and local American Institute of Architects Design Excellence Award program winners for the last fifty years. For contemporary projects the review criteria also included the AIA 10 Principles of Livable Communities. An additional criteria was that only places which could be accessed by the public, were eligible, therefore some architecturally-noteworthy private properties were not included in this listing.
The selections emphasize various types of design creations, including works by urban planners, landscape architects, local craftspeople and builders. The selection offers a view that evokes a collective sense of place created in cities and towns, as well as single structures designed by individual architects. Spanning the entire period of human settlement in Illinois, the list contributes a strong historical dimension to understanding the vast power of our shared architectural culture.
150 Great Places in Illinois
In 2006–2007, as part of the commemoration of the AIA organization's 150th anniversary, AIA Illinois named 150 Great Places in Illinois. This coincided with the national AIA announcement of the 150 highest-ranked structures as "America's Favorite Architecture". The 2018 Great Places is an update to the 2007 list, with the addition of 50 sites in Illinois. Chicago is the location of some 75 structures on the 200 Illinois Great Places list, more than any other community. Chicago also has 16 structures on the list of America's Favorite Architecture, an honor that was the result of the national AIA designation program in 2006–2007.
The 200 top-ranked structures are listed below.
