  4. morningamp:

    This weekend, October 18 and 19, the Chicago Architecture Foundation activates Open House Chicago, where people are invited into usually off-limits buildings and private homes throughout the city’s neighborhoods. Garrett Karp, program manager of OHC, joined Molly Adams and Luis Antonio Perez to share some highlights, especially for those who think buildings are boring.

    Oh hey. That’s me.
