Nice pics thanx or sharing !! I've been there before it's beautiful especially around Lake Michigan area. But I got the impression it's not a safe city especially at night.

Tres belle ville, et ce que j'aime encore le plus c'est le melange entre les anciens et nouveaux buildings. ça démontre tout le charme de la ville.
Absolument! Ils ont fait le choix de preserver, d'adapter, d'integrer plutot que de detruire. La mairie de Chicago et tout investisseur est oblige de tenir compte de l'avis de la Chicago Architecture Foundation qui est a meme de faire modifier les plans originaux de nouveaux immeubles afin de preserver le patrimoine architectural de la ville. La fondation est composee d'architectes bien sur, mais aussi d'architecte paysagiste, d'urbanistes, d'ingenieurs du genie civil, d'historiens et d'avocats.
