This is from an advertisement in the Chicago Sun-Times. I looked back through the thread and didn't see this posted before. It shows 550 St. Clair in context with its surroundings.

Here's my thought, why can't the developer add a LED screen to the base rather than have that bland mesh look that so many developer use to cover up the garage? I would think then would love the added revenue that they could have by having a large LED screen showing comercials.

This architect needs to discover that architecture exists in three dimensions.

Mr. "Yawn" are you posting in every single one of the threads to actually write clear, thoughtful, intelligent comments or are you simply just posting to bump the threads up and to just read what you write? Just curious.

Mr. CHIsentinel, I'm not quite sure what "bumping up" exactly means. I've just been monitoring this site for about 6 months now and I sort of reached a point or over-saturation where I needed to respond to some of the 'educated comments' I was reading.

Height and brand names don't make architecture Architecture....quality does.

That isn't even the right rendering.

Looks pretty three-dimensional to me:

Brininstool & Lynch are great at smaller scale projects. Their houses are stunning.

However in my humble opinion, their high rises are not yet at the level of their smaller scale works. This doesn't mean they won't be some day, but one look at their VUE 20, 1720 S. Michigan and their building at Ontario and Franklin work is a telling example of what I'm referring to. They are flat and generally uninspired.

A better example of the type of modernism they are attempting to achieve at the high rise scale is the work of David Hovey and his firm, Optima.

Nice talking to you!

Could someone post some pictures of this building? I moved from Chicago 3 weeks ago for work and don't get to see this anymore . Watched this thing out my window from demo and never got to see the glass. Is there any yet?

Thanks Spy. Wow no glass yet. Seems kind of odd.

I will be back to Chicago again someday. You can only be away for so long before you have to move back. I'm looking forward to coming home and seeing a whole new skyline.

^ I dunno - they still have to put up the glass, finishes, etc. - still a skeleton at this point (it'll never look as good as the Fairbanks, though... )

You just described Brininstool + Lynch's entire career so far in their projects over 8 stories tall.
