    The architecture in Chicago seems very cold, maybe its the use of brick. I like the trees in front of the first picture because it adds some colour and almost looks like vines that have grown on the side of the building

      There is an awesome mix of architecture in Chicago; everything from some of the oldest skyscrapers, where you can see the architects struggling with the simplicity of massive buildings having to be built as simple massive blocks (for the first time) through to wide streets cut with the cobwebbed mass of metal that is the high line and the amazing modern designs which line the river and epitomised by the millennium park (see earlier post). I guess what I was trying to capture here was the scale and sometimes ornate simplicity of some of the earlier buildings, it’s hard to get across the massive blocks of beautifully crafted walls of windows that look down upon you or the fragile-looking staircases that cling to the sides of buildings, climbing high into the sky.
