Free Write-Trip to Chicago
The trip to Chicago ended up being a lot of fun. I love the city, its similar to New York; however, not as dense and hard to get around. It is a great city to study architecture; there is such a collage of different styles and periods. While we were there we went to several places including: Oak park, the home of Frank Lloyd Wright and his studio; Millineum Park, design by famous architect Frank Gehry; the Chicago Architecture Foundation's Architeture Boat Tour; the architecture tour of Chicago's Loop, the early 20th c. highrises; the Chicago Art Institute; Chicago's Musuem of Comtemporary Art; and visited the Illinois Institute of Technology, home of Mies Van der Rohe's teachings. All in all this was a great trip and I really enjoyed visiting the city of Chicago.
