Interesting Balcony Patterns

The building to the front right caught my attention because of the white outline, but then I also like the pattern of the balconies.

I liked the look of these balconies and windows from the side too, but then noticed the new art deco details, which made me like it even more.

I like the railings.


Architecture As Plaid Shirt

This looks like a midwesterner's plaid shirt.


Formerly Known As...

Apparently this very tall building is no longer called the Sears Tower...who knew?


More Circular "Futuristic" Goodness

There's Lake Michigan in the distance. What is that down to the left, more Bertrand Goldberg?

I had no idea what this building was. It looked like a Bertrand Goldberg building...
I did a bit of research and found this: Prentice Women's Hospital


River City

I do not think it looks like a river, but it does look like a mini city.

I actually like Bertrand Goldberg's buildings, but I also like curvy/circular shapes. I found this design more appealing, probably because it's more organic. Our tour-guide told us this group of buildings is not as well maintained as Marina City.


Corn Cobs

There are really two towers. I just got a picture of this one.


Chicago Architectural Variety

Look at all those differences!


Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field is quite unremarkable from the outside.

 This is what is known about the outside of the field.

I sent a picture like this to my brother during the game and he replied, "Where's the ivy? That's not Wrigley Field."

Here's the ivy and the old-school scoreboard.

Crappy plastic seats, but they were cheap for row 10!

Old-school cub. The style of the bear looks old even if the font doesn't.

The Cubbies won too, which was fun.
