Last week I was downtown for a meeting about the upcoming Out of Chicago Photography Seminar that’s taking place the day before Open House Chicago, the biggest architectural event of the year where loads of buildings typically closed to the public are open, for FREE, for a whole weekend every October! If you’ve never heard of this and never been, be sure to check out the OHC site and OOC site…both events are really going to be great!

Since I had to coordinate car drop-off’s and kid pick-up’s with Brady I parked near his office in the Deloitte building, which was kind-of on a whim. However, it worked out really well given I entered the lobby through the back entrance, away from security, so I was able to get some images without being kicked out in their typical 2-seconds upon entering the building. Seriously, anyone who’s ever tried to get photos of this building knows security is strict, which is really too bad because the lobby is so cool.

The first few images are from the back entrance with the great ceiling lights reflecting on the marble walls in some really interesting patterns.

Of course, those reflections made for some great abstracts too.

The ceiling is curved and is actually the underside of the parking ramp, great use of form following function.

Then a few from the front entrance lobby.

Not too long ago I photographed the exterior of Deloitte, here’s a blog post with those images. And a Flickr set with every image I’ve made of the building.
