Sweater #230

Behind the Chicago Symphony Orchestra building on Wabash, is a quaint little cafe area that serves daily lunch diners from nearby office buildings.  Despite the frenetic pace of traffic and the high pitched squealing of the train tracks above, this little space is a respite from the harshness of the city.  Finding these little green gems amongst the tall concrete, steel and glass giants provides city dwellers with a much needed connection to the natural landscape of the region.  While Chicago has a strong base in architectural accomplishments, it also seems to be a city keeping up with trends of urban agricultural projects such as green spaces, gardens and collectives.
