IIT features great tour guides and beautiful Mies architecture

The Mies Society recently hosted a tour for two students from Japan and not only did we wow them with a fantastic tour guide, we showed them several amazing Mies buildings. Below is a photo and comment from Aiko - thank you for the feedback, Aiko!

 
I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed Francisco’s tour - he was very knowledgeable and knew answers to all of our questions. His stories were entertaining and we could tell that he loved Mies and the IIT campus! We’d love come back and do a tour with Francisco when the renovation of the Crown Hall is completed.
Best,
Aiko
