Open House Chicago 2015. Last Part. The Rookery. The best to the end.
|A5 Hand.Book, pen, and ink.|
The last building we visited was the Rookery. We had an hour to sketch before heading to have some food and drinks. I wanted to see the vault in the underground floor. It took me several minutes to get in there and browse the collection of original architectural elements. Once out, I picked this view on the ground floor. After several minutes a woman in uniform came to tell us not sketching was allowed. We were in shock, all of us. Oh well, we swallowed the bitter experience and moved on. I just had a chance to sketch the stairways. Ten minutes were enough after all, to resemble the signature feature of this building.
