Day 362: Preston Bradley Hall

Preston Bradley Hall is located at the Chicago Cultural Center downtown. This is where you can find the famous Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass dome. This dome was restored in 2008 with amazing results to allow the dome to be viewed as it was in 1897. Approximately 38 feet in diameter, the dome spans more than 1,000 square feet. It contains some 30,000 pieces of glass in 243 sections held within an ornate cast iron frame.
