The Rookery's Atrium

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 5 April 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

From the archives..............

Designed by famous architectural partners Burnham and Root, the picturesque Rookery in Chicago was originally completed in 1888. Adding to its impressive stature, Frank Lloyd Wright redesigned the stunning two-story, skylit atrium in 1905. Meticulously renovated and maintained, the Rookery Building was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1972 after being added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

Gorgeous detail, wonderful lighting. I wonder about the woman in blue. Since she is the only human in the scene, did you wait for her? Place her? Accidentally include her?
