Cataloging The Historic Building Death Row In Chicago

New, 10 comments

Chicago has a lot of old buildings that will soon be meeting the wrecking ball. Photographer David Schalliol, in coordination with Gapers Block, has created a photo/bio series and interactive map called To Be Demolished that catalogs the long list of Chicago's buildings that are destined to be destroyed. The project examines a broad range of buildings, including many from the Chicago Historic Resources Survey's list of historically relevant structures. All of the buildings featured in the series are on the city's Demolition Delay Hold list, which can be viewed here and here.
