Blue Skies over the MSOE Campus Center / Blatz Brewery Bottle House

It’s been a nose-to-the-grindstone kind of day. Reading lots of student drafts in my two sections of film studies and compiling/composing feedback for the debate teams in my freshman studies class. I got to work shortly after 8:00 this morning and will be reading and commenting on student work into the evening. Fellow teachers know what I’m talking about.

Blue skies over MSOE Campus Center / Blatz Bottle House

While walking from one building to another under a cheerful blue sky in the cool breeze coming off Lake Michigan this afternoon, though, I did take time out to snap some pics of MSOE’s Campus Center, the former Blatz Brewery Bottle House. This building (an example of Streamline Moderne architecture) is one of my favorites, as I’ve mentioned before, here and here, for example 🙂

So when I saw the sky reflected in the line of windows that sweep along the front of the structure, what else could I do?
