Thanks to Katherine Campbell ... I am able to appreciate Chicago's Art Deco Designed buildings.
Extravagant adornments on buildings. As a child, I remember always looking up at mouldings, checking for details. The buildings always felt so grand: a testament to not only wealth, but history and art. This weekend in Chicago, I walked past the Carson Pirie Scott Building - Louis Sullivan. It's still there, but sadly, the store inside is gone. The beautiful ironwork still adorns the exterior, and it'd be nice to see a new retail tenant inside.
