*scowles at Bvic... Illinois Center owns you *

1. Apparel Center / Time Life Bldg.

2. The Heritage @ MP (yeah yeah yeah... I know... everyone else loves it. I'm still not over them forgetting to paint the whole middle of the facade damnit!)

3. There were some downright hideous entries in the Tribune Bldg. contest (I don't remember the specifics), but, there were far more losers than winners.

4. Everything replacing Cabrini Green. The Green was bad... this might be worse.

Park Millennium and Hyatt Regency are the only bad buildings I can think of in the lot. What else you got?

Illinois Center is like vertical diahrea. I can take 3 or 4 Meis buildings together, but Meis knockoffs grouped together with other hideous buildings is a totally different thing. Some of the buildings of Illinois Center I can stand, i.e. Swissotel, Prudential Plaza 1&2, AON, Blue Cross Blue Sheild

I'd also like to add to my ugly list, 95% of the buildings done by James Lowenberg.
