Thanksgiving quiz - You've never been inside this building, but you will be. - What is it?


    Its indoor "street," with shops or galleries to each side reminds me of an Italian Galleria, such as


    Vittorio Emanuele in Milano.
    So yes, it is by an Italian.

    Its main staircase says "elegance"


    and it is the "son of"

    staircase at the Arts Club, Chicago, by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    So yes, this new building will grace, help transform, add greatly to, the Windy City. To help situate it for you, here's a view of Millennium Park, from the third floor window of the new building,


    in lovely autumnal colors.

    Do you know where I was today, to take these photos?
    In which major new cultural building, due to open
    (with a splash) in May?


    Details and more thoughts on this, more photos, exterior shots, plus- is the bridge to this any good? It's got a tough act to follow! Answers after we pause for Thanksgiving. I'll also write about the restoration work at Mies van der Rohe's 860-880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments.

    I have much for which to be grateful. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. And write me, if you can name the building above.
