I’m a big fan of architecture. Here are a couple pics from Chicago.
(The Tower in Fog from the first WorldCon post is from Chicago as well)
Gorgeous building, very stately, love the flying buttresses.
There’s a sweet underground mole-city/shopping center running below the hotel I was in. Unstoppably cool. Although the city is fairly hilly, so there are places where it comes out at ground level, and places where it’s actually a full story above the ground. But when I first stumbled across it I was a floor below ground level, so to me it’ll always be the mole-city.
Aside from the main fancy stip downtown, Chicago is old and run-down and ugly looking. It isn’t even cool industrial blight, it’s just decayed. I hope I don’t have to go back much.
