Fans of LifeIsMagnifique will know that we frequently feature art and literature finds from around the Sofitel world.
We snapped this image at Sofitel Chicago Water Tower, a perfect symbol of French heritage and cutting edge design. In fact architect Jean-Paul Viguier (whose design is pictured) was allowed to start from scratch when creating the hotel, and the result is striking — a dramatic bright white wedge-shaped building with an emphasis on bright and modern space. Magnifique!

ART WEEKEND

image

French Post-Impressionist painter Georges-Pierre Seurat spent over 2 years creating what is probably considered the best example of pointillism in art history. A Sunday Afternoon on  the Island of La Grande Jatte has been a staple of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1924, just around the corner from Sofitel Chicago Water Tower. The perfect art weekend!

HOTEL DESIGN

Frequent visitors to LifeIsMagnifique will know that we feature art and books from different Sofitel locations each week. Our Chicago property, Sofitel Chicago Water Tower, is an architectural star in its own right. There you’ll find not just information about its build, but books and renderings from the architect himself, Jean-Paul Viguier. Magnifique!

PARK ART
Spring is the perfect time to discover Chicago. The city’s parks are the settings for a world-class collection of over 200 fountains, monuments, and sculptures. Some of our favorites range from historic sculptures of famous people including Abraham Lincoln, Alexander von Humboldt, and William Shakespeare to some of America’s most exciting new works of art such as Agora in Grant Park and Millennium Park’s Cloud Gate, dubbed “The Bean.”
Best of all, you’ll find each of these (and many more) only a short distance from Sofitel Chicago Water Tower.
