Columbia College Chicago

1104 S. Wabash Ave.

1104 S. Wabash Ave., built in 1891, is a City of Chicago Landmark (1996) and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (1980). Built by William LeBaron Jenney, acknowledged as the inventor of the skyscraper for his fire-proofed metal skeleton-frame designs, the Ludington building represents his continuing experimentation as the first entirely terra cotta-clad skyscraper. The Ludington is also a rare survivor, one of only two extant loft buildings in Chicago built by Jenney.

When I found out a Aleksander Hemon was coming, I knew I would not be able to miss this opportunity. I fell in love with Sense8 last year and was always curious about how it was created. Please bring more people from Sense8 to speak with us!! I would love to her from the cast and Lana Wachowski!
