Big Green (Tile) Roof on Michigan Avenue

(click on images for larger view)
Via our indefatigable correspondent Bob Johnson, we bring you these photographs of the ongoing repair of the gabled clay tile roof of the 1912 Monroe Building, by Holabird and Roche, with the current work being done by their successor firm Holabird & Root. Also being restored are the skylights of the studios that have been home, at various times, to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, Barry Byrne, and Alfonso and Margaret Iannelli.
