Darn that man and his ginormous white hat, it's going to be burned in my memories forever
I thought these two apartment buildings were interesting, even though they may look dated to some of you. The designer wanted these building to look like trees with the centers to be the trunks, the rooms to be the branches, and the balconies to be the leaves but in a stylized way. I think he achieved his goal.
This is a classic art deco design, it's called an arm chair design because it obviously looks like an armchair
I loved the art deco details on this facade
Going under a draw bridge!
I loved the Chevron exoskeleton on the building on the left
Yes, my mom and dad were on the cruise as well. It wasn't just me taking pictures of myself by myself haha
Sears Tower, the tallest building in North America. And we got to go to the top of it .. at night! Pictures of that to come...!
The tour ended with a bang by giving us wonderful views of the entire skyline
After our wonderful little cruise, we started heading in the direction of Navy Pier. We passed by a lot of amazing buildings on our way. I am just so impressed with Chicago and it's beautiful atmosphere, it's amazing and unique buildings and the lovely weather it provided for us!
We quickly became interested and curious about this building that had pieces from different famous buildings from around the world built directly into it's walls. We found bits and pieces of everything from the Parthenon in Greece to the White House to the Duomo Cathedral in Florence to the great Egyptian pyramids! We closely inspected three of it's four walls and had fun looking at all the places that were represented.
One wall was dedicated to representing each of the 50 united states of America, and had a stone from some landmark that is famous from each state. It took us a while to find Utah and were starting to think that it wasn't cool enough for Chicago. But we eventually found it! It was one of the very last ones. I was surprised that they chose a stone from the temple as our landmark, for a lot of other states they took things from national parks, so I was expecting something from Moab or Zions or something along those lines. But how cool that they chose the temple to represent our great state!
