After securing our sous chef to stand in for us in 2008, we’re back cooking with Notes From NeoCon for 2009. We were among tens of thousands of product-hungry conference-goers who swarmed Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, the world’s largest commercial building and certainly the biggest one that has earned Silver certification status under the USGBC’s LEED Existing Building rating system. To provide you with a taste of what you most likely missed, we have prepared a savory show slice – deep-dish, of course, in honor of the hospitable host city – via this album on our Facebook Page. It not only includes photos, but accompanying notes and a link for every source. From tile to textiles, we’ve tried to season it to everyone’s taste.
