Mid-Continental Plaza... As Backdrop...

Often overlooked, this late modernist (1972) high-rise on the eastern side of the Loop, has a boldness all it's own. Mid-Continental Plaza is actually one of the largest buildings in the Loop, it has 50 floors and covers a full half block of Wabash between Monroe and Adams.

I like the building's simple Mies inspired lines. They make a great backdrop for capturing the sculptural lines of the Pritzker Pavilion's framework.

Again, as a backdrop to late 19th century buildings along Michigan Ave.

While the building is huge, it doesn't overwhelm the skyline.

Closer up, again as backdrop to the buildings along Michigan Ave.
