Just as in America, vast amounts of architecture in Britain is shit dispite how tall it is. However, thankfully we don't all suck on Trump's ***** extentions.

Sounds to me like Jamie really doesn't like the Donald. Perhaps he's an ex lover of Don seeking revenge by knocking his building on a forum?

I was watching the Bulls - Pistons game on ABC today, which is being played in Chicago. And after commercial breaks they show shots of the city. One of the shots was of the Trump Tower and Wrigley Building etc. I noticed in the shot the facade was only 2 levels above the first setback. But I know from recent picture updates I have given that the facade is really 10 levels above the first setback. This means that ABC is showing month old video-shots of the city that I would normally assume were live. I find this very weird. I doubt anybody else besides people on this forum would notice this if they saw the video-shot.

Maybe all the guys laughing at JAMIE should ask some of the people working in the old IBM building what they think of their new nabour. Dont think they like the Trump tower.....

Whats wrong with being negative? We have to question buildings and in this context, skyscrapers. I don't like this because it masks Mies van der Rohe's IBM building. A building designed to the highest quality with an unquestionable attention to detail. Trump's tower doesn't even come within 100 miles of that quality and deffinatly has no right to be growing next door. But as we can see, even most you people who take an intrest in architecture don't mind, you just seem to like the fact that it's going to be big and shiney. Well if thats all this forum is for then it's pointless. A good quality building is all about the details- LOOK AT THE BUILDING.-The glass doesn't even curve round properly!

Yeah, I'm surpised you hadn't noticed that before. They usually have the same shot angle at night, day, ect. and they show those during the game.

I'm still not convinced by this one either.... however not quite so hard line as Jamie up there. Gonna be hard to call until it's done and dusted. Nothing really bad about it... just seems like a space filler right now.

What's wrong with being negative? You must not have been to Texas. I'd take a tower that looks like Michael Jackson's face over the endless sprawl out here.

i've checked all 23 of your posts, like anyone could, and they are all negative. try being positive once, it's much more fulfilling.

Don't be so pessimistic, it's not good for your creativity as an architectural student.

having a difference in opinion does not deem personal insults necessary. if jamie wishes to express a negative opinion he should be allowed to, however he needs to do it in a more appropriate way, same as if you disagree with him you need to do so in a more appropriate way. i think we should all calm down a minute before this thread gets locked.

Fact: The Trump Tower is looking more and more like Chicago's new eyesore on the river. Blue glass, bright chrome-ish stanless steel, poor detailing, and Trump signs everywhere....

Fact: The IBM building is designed to have full exposure to the east overlooking the river & lake. The people working in that building are getting a great bird's-eye view of a construction project, and soon a great view of overpriced and garish condos and hotel rooms...

Fact: Over the past 15 - 20 years, there have been hundreds of Graduate School vingettes for solutions to the Sun Times site, many of which appeared more successful than SOM's effort... and those same Grad students are most likely working at SOM (but probably didn't have the opprotunity to assist in the design).

Funny Fact: Trump will be pissed if the Chicago Spire project goes ahead... and when they are both complete, the Trump Tower will be a laughing stock!

You're kidding me, right?

Trump himself may be the laughing stock, but not the Tower. You might as well say the Jin Mao is the laughing stock of Shanghai when SWFC gets topped off, same thing with 2IFC and ICC in Hong Kong. See, Trump Tower (final design) wasn't even supposed to be the tallest in Chicago. I guess even without ChiSpire it was supposed to be laughed at in the first place since, errr, Sears is still taller?

I think what you are seeing are reflections on the glass that are creating the illusion of an improper curve. Even in places where glass is straight, it sometimes looks like the glass is bubbly, wavy, and non-flat from the reflections. A little more critical thinking would have helped in your assessment.

Just you. It's been rising at about 10 floors per week. Should be topped out in a month or two.
