Rob in Chicago: A Chicago Sojourn

Rob Powers of Built St. Louis fame, the closest thing the StL archi-blogosphere has to a rockstar, has recently moved from Milwaukee to Chicago.

He has started a new blog about Chicago, which focuses on hidden and neglected parts of the city. I quote:

“You… won’t find any photos of the bean sculpture in Millennium Park. No Sears Tower. No views from the John Hancock. No shots looking up the Chicago River toward the Wrigley Building. No interior shots of the grand hall in the Field Museum. None of Frank Gehry’s titanium nonsense.”

In other words, Rob is using his amazing architecture-powered brain to document the parts of Chicago that actually make it Chicago. I’m really looking forward to reading what he finds.
