I see, you made it to the SouthSide of Chicago, Walter. Do you know who designed the IIT campus?

A really interesting, I think, view from inside (shortly after the entrance) of the McCormick Tribune Campus Center

Is that on the IIT campus? Looks like alot of the names have changed with time.

That's when you enter the center (where the train station is located as well) from the main road site - I've already posted some more pics within this thread.

Walter, I especially enjoyed your photos of night scenes.

(I am still unable to take night photos like that. Sad )

With my F70 (N70), I couldn't do that either ... without a tripods (and I've only got a monopods :wink: ).

The D200 can be set upt to ISO 1600 (or even higher).

No, not "changed". This is a new building, not an old building with a new name. The architect was Rem Kolhaas, I think. I don't know who designed the whole campus, but Mies van der Rohe designed the building in Walter's post you cited.

It is, and Walter has done a fabulous job of capturing the beauty.
