Florsheim Mansion

Florsheim Mansion ..
Address: 1328 N. State Parkway ..
Architect: Chicago architect Andrew Rebori ..
Completed: 1938 ..

I love this building!!! I was struck by the quote at the entrance ...
"Dwell in the Birthplace of Modernity" ...
It's really a striking building ... with rounded glass blocks and horizontal lines defining it's exterior.
