05 Oct University of Chicago
Posted at 17:40h
My daughter and her friend and I went on another college visit this weekend to the University of Chicago. Chicago has been high on her list for a while and this visit confirmed it in spades. I think she would move in tomorrow if they let her. She’ll be sending in her application in the next day or two – keep your fingers crossed!
As usual, I took some pictures of the buildings. While most of the campus is very beautiful, old Gothic architecture (apparently I didn’t take any pictures of these buildings), the Regenstein Library has an interesting exterior. I’m not sure I can call it beautiful, but the overlapping planes are very textural. You can see how big it is in the side view. They are building an addition that looks like a very large plastic bubble. Apparently, it will house several million books which can be accessed by a robotic arm!
This is a picture of one of the study rooms in the student union – I don’t know if I would get any work done in such an amazing space!
We also managed a very quick visit to the Art Institute of Chicago. More on that later.
