This weekend feature’s Chicago’s fifth Open House series. I’m a big fan of how active the architecture foundation in Chicago is and to me this initiative is definitely one of the more promising events during our stay. Only two days available to visit roughly 200 buildings. Most receive guests with a short tour or some introductory information. Mies’ IBM pavilion was a good one to start us of after the 30 minute waiting line at the tribune tower wouldn’t even bring us higher than the third floor. Some deep dish pizza for lunch at Pizzeria Due got us well prepared for an afternoon of many more buildings. To top it all of with a bourbon at Hancock’s Signature room. Now that’s an experience you can’t quite capture on film.
Happy to say it’s only day one so far so good hopes for more good stuff tomorrow!
