A facade that tells the story of demolition and neglect. The sign on the garage door indicates that if one finds themselves there, that they enter the buildings at their own risk. If only property owners in the US took this philosophy!
Chicago-made fire door.

Robotic pincers to move molten rods of glass between machines.
The windows reflect the sky. The bricks hit the ground.
