I love Chicago for it's beautiful Architecture and Arts. One very interesting observation for me was the blending of historical landmarks with modern day architecture. The third photo was taken of a particular block of buildings where the facades of the buildings have carefully been kept in tact while the interior has been completely gutted. In my designs, I love to add interesting artifacts from the past. There is a sense of nostalgia and a respectful nod to the past when you combine the contemporary with antiques.
