Chicago: IIT"s McCormick Tribune Campus Center.
I love architecture as much as my oldest loves trains, so it was a treat for all of us to attend an event last month at the downtown campus of Illinois Institute of Technology. The McCormick Tribune Campus Center houses both the student union and a CTA Green Line stop in modernist elegance. Just the act of parking under the el and pondering the trains zipping into the silver tube that is that station was a thrill for the kids. For pictures, you'll have to peruse other corners of the web because we are in the phase of toddlerhood for my youngest in which stopping to take a picture means a photo of a blur about to get into mischief and/or danger. So, we stop, we look and we promise to return another time when we can enjoy the environment at a more relaxed pace.
