Part two of the tour starts at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. The tour indicated you could go on stage, which I was expecting a large concrete pad. Instead it was a beautiful wood stage with the risers for the orchestra behind it.
Outside was the famed curved metal of the pavilion.
Not officially part of the tour we went past the tourists at the Bean.
The Maclean Center Grand Ballroom is the home of an art school.
The famed Railway Exchange Building had an architectural firm open on the fifth floor, giving a rare view above the skylights.
Along with a nice view of Millennium Park.
111 West Monroe Street was the home of another architectural firm who had some great models that they have designed and built.
Yet another firm down the street in the National Building had a visually interesting work on the entrance wall.
While not open we passed by the Sears Tower (now Willis Tower)
Also not officially part of the tour, but always open and interesting is Union Station.
Our final stop in the Ravenswood neighborhood is the Ravenswood Events Center. Once a sign factory someone has purchased it and restored it to show off their exotic cars.
