Chicago Patterns recently launched a new project to catalog thousands of historic buildings around Chicago. Nearby suburb Forest Park is included as well. 

So far, Chicago Architecture Data has logged sites in 77 communities. Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House in Hyde Park is one of the many buildings highlighted on the site. Details about style, year built, architect, type along with pictures and links to external references are included on each page about the building. 

Discover lots of interesting details about buildings in nearby Austin, Garfield Park (East and West) and Lawndale (North and South) neighborhoods.
