Situated on the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago the InterContinental Chicago is one of the city's most luxurious hotels and is a landmark frequented by architectural tours. The building ,completed in 1929, was originally built, as the Medinah Athletic Club, a luxury club for the Shrine organization by architect Walter W. Ahlschlager. Ahlschlager used elements of many different architectural styles through out the building, including, Moorish, Spanish, Venetian, Egyptian, Assyrian, and Greek. Each frieze located on the 8th floor depict a different scene, with Wisdom represented on the north wall, Consecration on the west, and Contribution on the south. The figures in all three scenes are said to be modeled after the faces of club members at the time of its design. The tower-like structure near the onion dome was built as an airship mooring but was never used. Five years after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 the Shrine Organization lost control of the building, and in the decade that followed the building went through various incarnations, including a brief stint as residential apartments.

Kwik-E-Mart (7-Eleven Store)-- Burbank, CA

Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart? Burbank does! Burbank, California was one of eleven cities nationwide to have a 7-Eleven convenience store completely converted into a "Kwik-E-Mart"-- the fictional store seen in the "Simpsons" animated TV series-- as part of a promotional gag for the July release of "The Simpsons Movie." In order to accomplish this feat, the 7-Eleven store was wrapped overnight in colorful foam rubber, the signage was changed, and shelves were re-stocked with food products seen in the TV series. Sprinklicious Donuts, Buzz Cola, Krusty-Oh's Cereal and other items (but not Duff Beer) remain on sale in the transformed stores, as well as other 7-Eleven's, through the month of July. Popular Simpsons characters and tongue-in-cheek advertising grace the inside and outside of the store as well. Model by Zoungy.
