I know we are past Art Nouveau in class, but I had to share this. It is a great example of design now based on design of the past. I was searching Chicago public art and found this fantastic blog devoted to just that. Following are images from that blog, of the subway entrance at Van Buren Street, which was a gift from Paris to Chicago in 2001. Look familiar?

Below is the image of the 1899, Hector Guimard designed, Porte Dauphine Paris Metro entrance.
