Open House Chicago: October 13-14, 2012

The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago is a free public event that offers behind-the-scenes access to over 150 buildings across Chicago.

No reservations are required and everyone is welcome. Explore the hidden gems and architectural treasures of Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods—all for free. Here’s a few shots I took today:

Jewelers Building – Shot from the 41st Floor of the Kemper Building. The glass was nasty dirty, the reflections were impossible to avoid, but I had to take a shot of the Jewelers Building. I’ve never seen it from this angle.
