There have been numerous building additions over the years.
The street is even more distinctive because of its curve, which follows the topography of the hill and the Fever River.
The park also is important in football history: It was home to the Chicago Bears from 1920 until their move to Soldier Field in the early 1970s.
Millennium Park, Chicago: Situated at the north end of Grant Park, Millennium Park entices thousands of visitors to stop, look and listen, every day.
But perhaps Millennium Park’s most iconic element is Cloud Gate, a 66-foot-wide bean-shaped sculpture by London-based Anish Kapoor, completed in 2004.
Illinois Institute of Technology Campus, Chicago: Designed in 1940 by a founder of Modern architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) academic campus is comprised of 26 buildings in a 60-acre densely urban setting, which set the precedent for modernist campus design.
In 1997, Mayor Daley commissioned a team to design a park over existing railroad tracks.
The result was the lively collage of elements seen today that include the Jay Pritzker Pavilion by Frank Gehry, the interactive Crown Fountain by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, and the conceptual landscape of the Lurie Garden, designed by the team of Kathryn Gustafson, plants expert Piet Oudolf, and theatrical set designer Robert Israel.
Particularly noteworthy to the street's commercial buildings are the large number of 19th- and early 20th-century shop fronts.
In the area of retail design, shop fronts were frequently changed, but in Galena there are few that date from later than 1920.
The centerpiece of the Columbus Drive addition is Adler and Sullivan’s magnificent Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room, which was salvaged from demolition and restored and painstakingly installed in 1977.
The most recent addition is the 2009 Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing, which increased gallery space by 65,000 square feet and accommodates the 15,000-square-foot Ryan Education Center facilities.
(Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia “quadrangle” plan was the prior traditional style.) IIT is laid out on a 24-feet horizontal by 12-feet vertical modular grid, which determined the scale and placement for structures and open space on the campus. Crown Hall (1950-56) stands out as the most celebrated structure on IIT’s campus, which represents the largest concentration of Mies-designed buildings in the world.
