The Chicago Magazine assignment about brutalist architecture had me shooting around Chicago’s loop, southside and even one suburb. I’ve shared separate posts from River City and the Regenstein Library, they were definitely my favorites of the seven locations. For the remaining five, I’ll share them all in this post. First up, my next favorite, the Science & Engineering building at the University of Illinois.
The next location takes us to the burbs, the Daily Herald in Arlington Heights.
Next up 55 West Wacker.
Then the Chicago Metropolitan Correctional Center.
And, finally, the Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist. This was, by far, the most difficult to shoot. It’s probably the smallest building of the seven, with fewer areas to work with but here are a couple I managed.
If you’d like to see the feature that was in last November’s issue, you can head over here for the online version to read a bit about brutalist architecture and see which images the editors chose.
