Thanks to the Open House Chicago event organized by the Chicago Architecture Foundation I had the opportunity to go up to the 71st floor of the AON Center. The bonanza of views from this building rival that from the Hancock building or the Willis Tower. Enjoy the images below. I wish I had a lenskirt with me to prevent window reflections.
