This is an amazing building. The internal street structure curves upwards some 60 floors, 850 fee and it was done in 1969 by Chicago architecture firm Perkins & Will. Don't miss the Chagall mosaic on the Towers courtyard!

A friend took a group of us to NPR's "wait, wait...don't tell me" in the Chase Auditorium. Outstanding production and live performance that was recorded for editing. A lot of the inappropriate humor will end up on the cutting room floor, but it was high...More

Chase Auditorium is a wonderful intimate theater for the taping of Wait Wait don't tell me NPR news quiz show. Absolutely a blast to attend.

Sounds weird but walk up to it from down the street and you'll understand why. Although the building is actually perfectly straight the closer you get the more it looks like it curves and it's quite a mind trick. Should definitely check it out.

Went here for business and was excited to see Chase and its presence throughout he city. Included pictures of the building and views from the top floors. Breathtaking!

The Chase Bank Auditorium hosts the Thursday taping of the popular NPR radio news quiz show. It is broadcast the following Saturday. Really fun and funny to watch live. The 2.5 hour show is edited down to the one hour broadcast.

Chicago is a dream for architecture buffs, from late 19th century to today. The Chase tower is another of the interesting buildings, and is most recognizable by its curved front. Step close to the wall and look up, the effect is amazing.

We passed by this building on multiple occasions. Look up. Very cool. It's just amazing seeing the curved surfaces. Wow. If your in the area go see it.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
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
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
