Crown Hall

Architect Dirk Lohan smashes a window with the aid of his son Carsten, 9, during the IIT "Smash Bash" at S.R. Crown Hall on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology. Dirk Lohan is the grandson of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the architect who designed the building. All the glass will be replaced during an extensive renovation of the building. The window was one of three that were broken during the ceremony on May 17, 2005.
