This is the James R. Thompson building in Chicago

James R. Thompson Center1

The building opened in May 1985 as the State of Illinois Center. It was renamed in 1993 to honor former Illinois Republican Governor James R. Thompson. This building takes up an entire city block in downtown Chicago. Bling and I loved the elevator and all the windows and the architecture.

Check out the roof, to me this is so interesting!

This is the left side of the entrance from where we were standing. It looks like a ship to me! I love that

This is the right side of the entrance from where we were standing.

This was Bling’s idea to take photos of the other buildings through the glass. I thought that was really cool! Bling is a great tour guide and she sure loves her city of Chicago! It’s her kind of town! 😉
