Since its definitely on my mind, I want to write about my upcoming trip to Chicago, Il. All the 4th year architecture majors at Clemson are going on a field trip to Chicago, to study the modern architecture. The 3rd year students go to New York every fall. I guess there is a belief that as an architect you should have a understanding of the United States' major urban cities. I am pretty excited about going to Chicago too; I have never been. We leave Wednesday morning from Charlotte Airport at 7:40 am, so getting up at 4:30 a.m. in Clemson to drive to Charlotte is going to be a little rough but I think I will survive. While we are their we are set up to go the famous Chicago Riverboat Architecture Tour, go to the top of the Sears Tower, go on a tour of Modern Architecture studying Chicago's skyscrappers, and of course have a good time.
