Foellinger Auditorium

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 November 2008 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Foellinger Aditorium marks the southern terminus of the Main Quad, directly facing the Illini Union at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Originally known as the "University Auditorium", the structure was renovated in part thanks to the donation from Helene Foellinger of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The structure is designed by Charles Blackall, a prominent Boston-based architect who specialized in theater design. It is used for stage productions, speaker presentations, and large lecture classes. The photo did not turn out as well as hoped due to the fact that I was facing south and shooting into the sun. Photo taken October 10, 2008.

They don't build buildings like this much anymore. Fabulous Steven.

I like how these shots are conveying the space around the buildings . . it makes them come so much more alive.
