I am going to be in Chicago on Sunday, and do not have a vehicle. I would like to see the Farnsworth house. I have been trying to decide between taking the Architectural Societies tour of the rest of the Mies sites, going to the IIT campus and the Farnsworth alone, or some other options.
a) who usually takes the tours?
b) how far is the house from the train station?
c) how much of the IIT campus do you get to see?
d) if you just wander around the IIT campus, what are the chances that you get to see the inside of the chapel, for example.
e) the tour is 70--it costs 20 to get to the farnsworth, 20 to get into the farnsworth, the tour promises a lunch, so is the time cash worth it?
f) do you get to see inside the farnsworth house?
g) how well has it been restored since the flood?
h) is it going to be crawling with people?
a) I am staying at Andersonville
b) Money is a bit of a factor
