Really? Honestly I don't think so. The same with Sears Tower, both are not beautiful. I do not say that it is ugly, but it is not really beautiful. The Aqua Tower is much more beautiful than this.

Best regards !

You want to just go ahead and say what other towers are not beautiful, so you dont have to go on to many threads and do separate posts?

I don't like Sears that much either, although it is overwhleming to look at.

Aqua is quite beautiful, IMO.

And I also think that Trump Tower is beautiful. It reminds you of of a modern-day ziggurat, and depending on where you view it, its aspect/profile changes -- is seems to be dynamic and static at the same time.

I never look at Sears (or Hancock, or IBM) and think "wow, they're pretty." Instead, I see strong, purposeful, no-frills skyscrapers. Perfect buildings for Chicago, during the times they were built. I agree they don't look obviously "beautiful" like some of the newer curtain-walled buildings, but I don't believe SOM and Mies were going for beauty. They were about form following function, which is simply a different perspective on what makes a building beautiful.

But I walk by Trump every day, and it is DAMN pretty.

My Chicago Line River Cruise + Spire Site Visit Video

Hello Friends and Fans,

I posted some of my Chicago Line River Cruise Pictures already but I thought lets make a vid of my tour with my Spire Site visit and some nice soundtrack:

Music: The Killers - Mr. Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont's Thin White Duke Remix)

Enjoy!

Also thank you very much for your nice compliments
