ArchiTech is a historically comprehensive commercial gallery of architectural art, opened in Chicago's River North gallery district in 1998.

They specialize in original drawings by architects and industrial designers, as well as original prints, drawings and photographs by artists inspired by the built environment. Prominent in the ArchiTech collection are lithographs from Frank Lloyd Wright's Wasmuth Portfolio of 1910, original plans and construction documents from the architectural firms of Daniel H. Burnham, and archives from the estate of Alfonso Iannelli, Chicago's greatest industrial artist.

From 18th Century etchings by Giovanni Piranesi to 19th Century drawings by the Parisian firm of Viollet le Duc....from masterworks by architects of the American Prairie School to original designs by the leading decorative and industrial artists of the 20th Century, ArchiTech brings nearly 300 years of architectural art to corporate and private collectors today.
