Open House Chicago continue…
The North Leg of the Chicago River toward Chicago Avenue – clearly we are in … Chicago.
151 North Franklin – a new, nondescript building saved by a great rooftop deck.
Some strange lighting on a nearby building.
180 North LaSalle – it was billed as Open House, but really just a lobby was open.
Another (brief) revisit – The Builders Building. But this skylight is worth it.
20 West Kinzie – Originally a Google Building it is now home to a flexible work space group called We Works.
Their 17th floor common space offered some different aspects on some iconic buildings.
They too have a nice outdoor space on the 17th floor.
Just up the street in a 100 year old warehouse is the architectural firm of Ross Barney.
330 North Wabash – Miles van der Rohe designed this basic, yet famed 695’ high skyscraper.
The minimalist, but stylish lobby.
Originally built for IBM and completed after Rohe’s death in 1969, the Open House Chicago event was held on the 15th floor in the offices of Thornton Tomasetti.
This firm is a leader in engineering design, focusing on mechanical engineering of many famed skyscrapers around the world.
Our final stop of the day – the John Hancock Observation Deck. Definitely not part of Open House Chicago, but worth the visit on this partly cloudy day.
We arrived about an hour before sunset and barely made it up in time, but we did!
Enjoy sunset and night time in Chicago.
