Back to Black
    at Mies van der Rohe's Lake Shore Drive Apartments

    The first photo of a newly repainted portion of 880 Lake Shore Drive. Looking good. Now you see why I was so enthused about painting it.
    We now see how very grey and faded the buildings are.



    Below is the other sample, a more matte black, on the bottom left. To the left of the glossy black.


    The original black paint went on glossy, but quickly faded. So if the center sample here faded quickly it might be allright. Or something in between. But the restoration architects are leaning towards the sample on the left.

    Imagine how gorgeous it will be when the entire tower is painted.



    As is Crown Hall after its recent renovation. We're lucky to be living in modern times.
