cornflake dreams.: shining like a diamond.

shining like a diamond.

its about time i write about architecture:: one of my favorite buildings in chicago is the 10-story Spertus Insitute of Jewish Studies .

located on south michigan it is nestled among other giants, but its glass facade allows it to stand out as a beautiful distinctive building. i had the pleasure of attending an award event inside early last year but i need to schedule another visit.

the facts: designed by chicago-based Krueck & Sexton Architects, opened November 2007

regardless of your personal religion this building is worth a visit (admission is freeeee!). what's inside: changing exhibitions gallery, museum core collection display, library reading room and circulating collection, chicago jewish archives and rare books and maps, spertus shop. more info
