Citizen Chicago Street Photography

Oak Thitayarak is a designer and photographer who's recently released Citizen Chicago, a thirty six page book of beautiful images captured from moments of everyday life in the city streets. Street photography and street portraiture is a documentary art form where extraordinary candid photographs are created from seemingly ordinary moments. "This form of photography, and photography in general has shown me a lot about life. It's taught me to live with an open mind, never to pre-judge a person or a situation. You can find beauty everything, just take the time to see." A notion Oak further expresses in the book's manifesto- For more from Oak visit oakt.net Chicago- a city of the people. Hardened by its weather and bonded by a common loyalty, an unstated union is upheld by the diverse citizens of this metropolis. Through the eyes of a street photographer, the city becomes a theater. Fascinating characters captured in portraits and snapshots depict frozen scenes from a story directed by life and fate. With every press of the shutter, the intention is to reveal potential in spotting artistry, even in the mundane. Sometimes poetic, others are as harsh as reality can be. Through it all, each exposure remains true, unposed, and unscripted. Take a walk with me, and let the breeze guide us through the City of Wind.

Chicago Neighborhoods Project by Steve Shanabruch

Steve Shanabruch is a designer based in Chicago. With his love for his city, he decided to mix and create logos for each neighborhood based on personal experience and intimate knowledge. It's one designer's take on Chicago, I hope you'll enjoy those creative and yet amazing logos. My vision might not match yours, but I hope that we can agree that a neighborhood with a logo is better than a neighborhood without.

The Cozy CouponCabin's Office

It's been awhile since I've posted about a cool office here, so this week I've selected one which is amazing to show you, is the CouponCabin's office in Chicago. A beautiful and elegant space. The place has a rustic look and at the same time very elegant. This location was formerly a bank deposit, a four-story building built in 1909. So today, completely refurbished and modernized, is the headquarters of CouponCabin and its 50+ employees. This reform simply converts the spot, with brick walls, wood flooring and the contrast with white tables and a very clean and white lining, made the cozy look like a real technology company. © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto © Jason Soto Images sent by Scott Kluth of CouponCabin.

Lost in Chicago eating Chicago-style pizza

Last Sunday I arrived in Chicago and had the opportunity to visit one of the coolest cities I’ve ever been to. It was a very short trip, only 2 days, and I will definitely go back to Chicago again in the future; hopefully the near one Walking around Chicago was great: the skyscrapers and all the history behind them and their architects such as the well known Mies van der Rohe. Also some famous movies shot there like: Batman Begins, The Dark Night, The Blues Brothers, Road to Perdition and the Ferris Bueller's Day Off historic parade scene. The first skyscraper was the ten-storey Home Insurance Building in Chicago, built in 1884–1885. While its height is not considered unusual or very impressive today, the architect, Major William Le Baron Jenney, created the first load-bearing structural frame. In this building, a steel frame supported the entire weight of the walls, instead of load-bearing walls carrying the weight of the building, which was the usual method. This development led to the "Chicago skeleton" form of construction. After Jenney's accomplishment the sky was truly the limit as far as building was concerned. Wikipedia In 1885, the first steel-framed high-rise building rose in Chicago ushering in the skyscraper era.[18] Today, Chicago's skyline is among the world's tallest.[19] Downtown's historic buildings include the Chicago Board of Trade Building in the Loop, with others along the lakefront and the Chicago River. Once first on the list of largest buildings in the world and still listed thirteenth, the Merchandise Mart stands near the junction of the north and south river branches. Presently the three tallest in the city are the Sears Tower, the Aon Center (previously the Standard Oil Building), and the John Hancock Center. Wikipedia Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, along with Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, is widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Mies, like many of his post World War I contemporaries, sought to establish a new architectural style that could represent modern times just as Classical and Gothic did for their own eras. He created an influential 20th century architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces. He strived towards an architecture with a minimal framework of structural order balanced against the implied freedom of free-flowing open space. He called his buildings "skin and bones" architecture. He sought a rational approach that would guide the creative process of architectural design, and is known for his use of the aphorisms "less is more" and "God is in the details". Wikipedia I really enjoyed my time in Chicago and if you ever get a chance to visit this great city, I highly recommend you go. Meanwhile I'll leave you with some photos I took.
