harold_dams One thing that I love about Chicago is the massive quantity of little details and awesome works that make the city really interesting and unique. A lot of cities like NYC, Paris, London, LA, Caracas, Miami, Rio, etc. Are full of landmarks that make them unique. Chicago has its own, of course. The overrated ones like #TheWillisTower #MillenniumPark the new #TrumpTower or #TheJohnHancockObservatory. However, the city has incredible landmarks as well that the majority of visitors and even their residents don't pay any attention to. In this picture, for example, we can see the Flamingo by Alexander Calder. One of the most influential artist in the american modern art history. Cool, but what else can we appreciate here? If you don't have an idea I will summarize a little. The flamingo or "Calder's red" (as old people call it). It was made with that shape and vibrant color to offset the "black and steel panorama of the buildings" that surround the area. Now, why do I love Chicago so much? why am I excited? And, what am I trying to say? Well, one of the sets of 'Black & Steel' buildings behind the "Calder's red" was designed by none other than the awesome Ludwig Mies van Der Rohe. So in less than a quarter mile you have two (maybe more. I'd have to do more research) masterpieces combined tightly in a dense urban area. The Kluczynski Federal Building and The Flamingo. Amazing right? And people still get sad for missing the trip to the observation deck at the Willis Tower. 2w
