33 E. Congress Pkwy

33 E Congress Parkway, Chicago, IL 60605

33 E. Congress Parkway was built in 1925-26 by noted Chicago architect, Alfred S. Alschuler, who designed the 1927 Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The seven-story brick and terra cotta "Congress-Wabash Building" was commissioned by Ferdinand W. Peck, Jr., a real estate developer, and initially housed a bank, offices, and recreation rooms that included dozens of pool tables. A national billiards championship was held here in 1938. By the 1940s, the building was known by the name of its major tenant, the Congress Bank. In the 1980s it became the home of MacCormac College. Columbia College leased space in the building starting in 1997 and purchased the structure in 1999. It currently houses administrative offices, classroom space and the college's radio station.

The workshop was designed to explore the sense of space and body awareness. It was cleverly designed with interactive activities such as body scan, mirroring, and personal space discovery. To be honest, I personally was a little underwhelmed by the level of body awareness. However, I had to take consideration that the event is opened to people with all levels of body awareness. Despite this minor dissatisfaction, the hostesses did a wonderful job explaining the importance of the activities and the goal of the interaction. I would be interested to attend workshops with more creative methods that explore the same concepts rather than those with traditional and set-to-stone body awareness activities.

I love to socialize with ASL students and they were great. I wish that I have little more time to hang out with them. They were awesome! :)
