The Lucky Building in Chicago is well-known in the construction industry. The entire roof is made of transparent glass, forming a patio effect. The ubiquitous and complex geometric patterns, coupled with winding spiral staircases, are beautiful. The rhythm that kills Virgo!
The Rookery Building is a historical building in the financial district of Chicago. It was built in 1871 after the Great Fire. The interior light court was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900’s. This building houses businesses, a Potbelly, and has plenty of tourists visiting to ooh and ahh over the masterpiece. It’s a beautiful and thoughtful designed building, inside and out.
While the construction of the 1893 World's Fair took place in Jackson Park, most of the planning took place on the 11th floor of the Rookery building. Daniel Burnham built the Rookery 2 years before he was named the master architect of the fair, and his offices here served as the meeting place for many of the great minds who helped to shape the exposition. If you can, peek into the library, which will transport you back in time, and try to imagine what the city looked like back when this vantage point had unobstructed views of the lake.
A gem of a building in the southern portion of the Chicago Loop. Designed by Daniel Burnham and later the lobby was re-designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Incredible detail throughout the whole building, including the stair wells. If you are in the loop - peek your head in for a true treat.
The building should be old, and I feel a little vicissitudes of life.
