Madonna della Strada Chapel, Loyola University, 1939
I have yet to get inside this place, but I will. Oh, I will.
The outside is a sharply defined arrangement of bold, angular masses. The main entrance actually faces the lake; this is the back. Oh, if only all buildings could have a backside half this good!
Frank F. Fischer Apartments, 1209 N. State, 1937
I saw this one in a photograph somewhere, and knew I had to pay a visit. Behind that Streamline facade, there’s a thin, lengthy apartment building on the right, facing a narrow courtyard on the left. It’s possible to go nose-to-the-glass and see it from the outside, but it can’t be photographed very well.
I just discovered Mr. Rebori’s name recently, so I’m sure to be tracking down more of his buildings.
