More from the old town

Decided to go back and expand on my photography before my first trip to Toronto. The campus of Illinois Tech in Chicago has a lot of notable modernist architecture, and the school in general does have a feeling of looking to the future. The historic Main Building feels out of place now amongst the newer glass and steel framed buildings, whom in turn feel ironically out of place next to the new dorms with their shining metal. The commuter rail station for Metra, one of their newest, also stands out from other stations in the system with its dramatic concrete ramps, metal shelters, and paving bricks. The quaintness that characterizes many of their suburban stations is not found here.
