To be demolished

to be demolished

There are several buildings on the historic building death row in Chicago – Singapore is similar to Chicago in that way, with few advocates to save these spaces of history. My last apartment building, which was right next to Richard Parrillo’s mansion, will be facing the wrecking ball soon as well, so this feels personal. Luckily, photographer David Schalliol, in coordination with Gapers Block, has created a photo/bio series and interactive map that catalogs the list of Chicago buildings about to be destroyed. Check them out over here. 

There are churches and synagogues in the series, but I like the plain, squat buildings the most.
