That time Lillian and I went to Chicago to see some buildings, and eat awesome popcorn.
We hadn’t really planned on visiting “The Windy City” that year but we just couldn’t pass up another trip. Continuing our tradition of taking a trip each year, I suggested Chicago. Neither of us had been, there was lots of awesome architecture, and there were tons of awesome food (which we both thoroughly enjoyed but lacked the photographic evidence). So why not, right?
I’d recommend anyone with an inkling for architecture to check out Chicago. It houses the top 300 of America’s firms in that city alone, and has deep seated architectural roots. For myself, I’m not an architectural major or even had any sort of training in the field but I really enjoyed the visuals and as a bonus, we got to go to Frank Lloyd Wright’s old home/studio. It amazed me how his designs and work has stayed relevant and timeless over the years. Iconic for sure.
Before you click on the photos, here’s a bit of fun fact we learned from an Uber driver – Chicago got its name as The Windy City not from being a literally windy city, but from long winded politicians in the late 1800’s. You can learn more about it here <—- click that!
Enjoy the photos!
