Monday Morning Mirth
What’s more fun than a trip to Great America? Why, a visit to your local government Money Pit!
Here in Chicago we are the incredibly lucky owners of the State of Illinois Bldg on Randolf St.
From the outside, it looks like a big flying saucer.
From the inside, 16 stories up where I took this picture, it looks, well, pretty empty!
The building, designed by Helmut Jahn, is a semi-circle of offices that hug one long curve on the North side of the building where the workers freeze in the winter and are baked by the South facing windows in the summer.
BUT I LOVE the Elevators! They go pretty darn fast and give an unparalleled views of the entire spread all the way down to the food court on the basement level or just a guy sipping his Starbucks in the vator next to you…
