Thread: Trump International Hotel and Tower - Chicago - by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

    Default Trump International Hotel and Tower - Chicago - by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill


    I question it's design. It's not as great as a 1000ft building should be.

    Is that the only picture you've seen of it?

    I too question this ungainly turd. It seems they compressed the design for 7 South Dearborn while staring at the Sears Tower and called it a day. Hopefully it will be canceled.

    I wonder why the 7 South Dearborn was canceled. It seems some what better that the TTC. And about cancelling the TTC, I agree 100%, but it's been approved.

    7SD was cancelled because the finances were handled by an incompetent and the building itself was technically unfeasible.

    The exact opposite of TTC.

    Oh. I though it's design was somewhat interesting.

    How about, no.

    I think of Chicago I think of Sears and Hancock, I dont think of postmodernism or Smith.

    7 South Dearborn would have been a more elegant and central skyline peak than the Sears Tower. This will just be a regrettable eyesore.

    It does remind me of Tower 42, a building that I don't like much.
    But I have the impression that this one really belongs in Chicago. I can already feel its presence. It's not a pseudo-skyscraper or an intellectual object.
    It fits.

    If they start the construction soon, I know I'll spend much more time in the windy city.

    Yeah. The TTC is going to be a curvy version of the Sears Tower. I think that the 7SD would have been better for the skyline, but that's the way it is.

    I happen to like some parts it. *The lower portion looks very sleek as it fronts the street right next to the river. *But the setbacks make it look too much like a curvaceous Sears.

    Except that the skin will be very different, and undoubtedly, very appealing and contemporary.

    Supposedly it's going to match the masonry of the Wrigley Building.
