Located at the southeast corner of Clark and Washington across the street from the Richard J. Daley Center, the Chicago Temple Building at 77 West Washington is dwarfed by the city's skyscrapers and often judged to be just another office building. In fact, it is...More

shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
