The pandemic has left what usually is the most crowded spot in Chicago, empty and a bit sad. There was a small crowd gathered with appropriate social distancing so that The Bean can remain COVID free. So far, it’s working.
I haven’t quite decided if I appreciate the Jay Pritzker Pavillion. The modern, asymmetrical, what-am-i-looking-at? design is, for me, as fascinating as it is frustrating. Yeah.. I tend to be one of those symmetry people. For more check out this link: https://www.archdaily.com/892320/the-jay-pritzker-pavilion-gehry-partners
Here’s an idea… stick with me… let’s design and build, not one, but two giant LED glass block towers, and have them face each other. Then, let’s have water cascade down from the top of these towers. Then, let’s project a video of a giant face on the giant glass block towers. Then, let’s video the face changing, as if to expel water from it’s mouth, and at just the precise moment, we actually shoot a stream of water from the mouth of the giant LED face. Cool? Right? Thank you Jaume Plensa.
We spent New Year’s Day (also our 36th wedding anniversary) in Chicago! So grateful for my WordPress family and wishing you all the best for 2019!
I spent some time in Chicago with some of my colleagues today. Here is a bit of what I saw. First, falling presents at Macy’s.
Everyone knows that if you find yourself at Macy’s in Chicago during the Christmas season that a visit to The Walnut Room is not to be missed.
The Bean (Cloud Gate) is like a magnet for photographers. I was unable to resist.
I saw two stars and a bean.
The Chicago River looking particularly grand today.
Thanks for stopping buy!
