The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

I utterly love downtown Chicago!  One of the most interesting things about it (to me, anyway) is the collection of eclectic architecture.  There are many iconic buildings in this one particular photo; a cornucopia of different designs and styles from various decades.

And yet, perhaps even strangely enough, it all seems to collaborate quite nicely, don’t you think? If we were playing the kiddo game, “I-Spy” (ah, who am I ‘kidding’, they probably have an app for it now), we would have a treasure trove of buildings and structures to choose from.

On the right-hand side of the photo, do you see a rather greenish-looking building with a gold roof? That structure is known as the, “Champagne Building”.

Please have a look around!  If there is a building that particularly catches your eye, please let me know and I’ll find out what it is, who designed it, etc……..etc……..( I do love ‘etc.’!)
