I love architecture and history. If you’ve ever taken a trip to Chicago you’ll know what a fabulous city it is for both, with old architecture scattered among the newest glass and steel skyscrapers that seem to be sprouting up all the time. In the Golden Age of Chicago that spanned from 1880 to around the turn of the century, the new architects on the block were a pair of visionaries called Burnham and Root.
From skyscrapers to railway stations, many of Burnham and Root’s grandest buildings still stand today, like The Rookery at 209 South LaSalle and the Monadnock building at 53 West Jackson Boulevard, a marvel of new engineering and design features in it’s day that is just as impressive now.
