This tour will be led by architect Mary Brush who oversaw interior restoration work on the Monroe Office Building (1912, Holabird & Roche) on Michigan Avenue. The Monroe Building’s unique lobby is covered with multi-colored tiles fabricated by Rookwood Pottery Company. The exteriors of the Ascher, Keith, and Gage Brothers Buildings (1898-1900), a collaborative effort of Holabird & Roche and Louis Sullivan, will also be viewed, as will the Neoclassical Peoples Gas Building (1920, D.H. Burnham & Co.) and the Straus Building (1924, Graham, Anderson, Probst & White), a distinguished Art Deco skyscraper.
