Orlando via Chicago

I am on the road for the next ten days. The main purpose is the Health Care Design Conference in Orlando that Jason and Stephen will also be attending. I arrived in Chicago today and will attend the A/E/C Futures Conference before I move on to Orlando. The conference here is being put on by AMI. AMI is the firm that Steve Isaacs, who regularly conducts our annual retreats, belongs to and he will be presenting at the conference. More about that later.
I arrived in a drizzly Chicago late this afternoon. This evening I took a stroll in Millenium Park along the Lake Michigan shore. It was an utterly fantastic sight in the rain. There are all kinds of new architectural and glowing electronic creations that have been installed in the last few years. With the surrounding towers of Chicago shrouded in mist, coming upon them in this weather made them all the more surreal.
Chicago is a very impressive metropolis with some of the best urban buildings in the country. Sort of like New York that shuts down by 9:30 p.m. (No kidding) I’m in the heart of the theater district. In New York at this time there would be thousands of people out on Times Square. Here the businesses are shutting down at 9:00 p.m. and the streets are pretty quiet. Nonetheless it’s an exciting place to be. Perhaps I just haven’t found the night life yet. I’ll keep you posted.

    Great to hear from you on the road! I imagine you won’t be enjoying an architectural river tour in the rain… oh well. Check out the new construction by the Navy Pier if you can!

    Millenium Park is a favorite of mine. I love all the art installations, especially the Tiffany Bean and the faces (name?) that you posted pictures of. If you get a chance, check out Orchestra Hall. It’s fantastic.
