Chicago

February 17, 2012

In Chicago, which is blowing my mind. A city thats an endless condensed strip mall… In a good way. Just endlessly extending into every direction, miles of drivable streeta tht are filled with 2 or 3 story buildings. Youre definitely meant to drive… Yet the scale of the buildings themselves is pedestrian oriented–walking is not unpleasant. 20120217-145849.jpg

Also do you see the variety of building heights and styles in this one block? Its like this everywhere… Uniformity exists definitely but is memorable.. (I always remember driving to midway and being struck by the endless rows of houses though Im sure they were also individualized)
