Chicago - Five Great Buildings
Crookers! Maya Jane Coles! Nicholas Jaar! Justice! Damian Lazarus! Chris Lake! Cedric Gervais! Rusko! Steve Bug! If they add The Loops of Fury at the last minute I might have a heart attack.
Already got my tickets so see ya at Montrose Beach! Be there or be square.
My walls are crying out for a print of this. Stunning!
This damn near bordering on epic… and I don’t use that word lightly!
1) River tour. If it’s warm out, a historical/architecture tour of Chicago is rad for both tourists and locals. Aside from a nice, breezy trip on the not overly smelly river, architectural tours in Chicago actually have significance. This isn’t your chumpsville city where you paid a bunch of dipshits a cool million to design a glass dildo in the center of your three-block downtown. Buildings in Chicago actually mean something to the history of the city, and you’ll learn something about the meat packing industry, health and sanitation, immigrant migration, and other cool stuff that you probably won’t appreciate because you’re a fucking uneducated hick. Fuck you
Sometimes I contemplate moving to a warmer place, then the lake and skyline give me a warm embrace.
Frank Fisher Apartments, Chicago, by architect Andrew Rebori, 1939.
I’ve always been kind of enamored with this building. It’s not the sexiest thing you’ve ever seen but the fact that it’s 65 years old is absolutely mindblowing. Talk about ahead of it’s time!
Looking east from the roof of the Equitable Building, Chicago, ca. 1967.
You’ve come a long way, baby. I still can’t believe that Streeterville/River North used to be such a hellhole of surface lots, warehouses, and industry.
Hahahahaha! Perfect. More like Sketchwater.
