^ Thks.

Good write-up in ************* on Spertus:


Krueck + Sexton Architects
Spertus
Chicago, Illinois

By its transparency the facade announces the accessible and public nature of Spertus.




.....Like the surrounding buildings, many constructed in the period of tremendous architectural innovation that followed the Chicago fire, this building is forward-looking in its design and use of materials, while maintaining respect for its important setting.....

Magnificent indeed. Deserving more praise than presently receiving!

Looking foward to more from Krueck + Sexton Architects. They're reportedly linked with new Children's Museum.
