We had a really beautiful fall weekend so I took the opportunity to photograph some locations I’ve been meaning to get to downtown and check out the Chicago Architecture Biennial at the Cultural Center.
One of my first stops wasn’t planned, but the atrium looked interesting. As I expected, I was quickly asked to stop photographing. Seems anytime there’s a bank in the building they don’t want anyone taking pictures. Oh well, I manged to get a couple shots.
The next stop was the recently redesigned building at 300 South Wacker. The facade on the west side of the building is a map depicting the Chicago River. It has a red 3D block identifying the building’s location, which is back-lit at night. Guess I need to get back over there some night to see that aspect of it.
Of course I couldn’t resist a good reflection.
Then I wandered around the exterior of the Art Institute of Chicago in an attempt to create some images for my White City series. Here are a couple outtakes not related to that.
Over to Millennium Park and the Lurie Gardens.
I ended my day at the Chicago Cultural Center for the Architecture Biennial, which runs through January 3, 2016. Certainly some interesting exhibits worth checking out.
Worthwhile trip downtown!
It wasn't bad 😉 Covered a lot of ground!
