Arist,

If you don't know how Europeans colonized your country go back to the School...

If you want to see tall buildings, go to Dubai... You have daily flights from Chicago to Dubai by Emirates...

So, since Europe colonized America, we have to take all architectural queues from you and cant come up with our own? The middle east colonized europe, why dont your countries take queues from them?

Don't get mad!
I just remembered you where your culture started... It is a fact, OR NOT?
If not, check the major part of the last names you can find in the telephone book of any city on the US...
I am just telling that The Elysian is a FREAK, a bad interpretation of classic architecture, that many good american architects have never imaginated to erect...
During the 80s they played with some classical forms and the results was called Post Modernism, but this is totally different...
Bad taste on his most pure form...
I love Chicago, I love SOM, Phillip Johnson and many other american architects but this building is unlovable...

In order to make a classic building you need to follow some specific rules and proportions, if not you can get everyting but a classic... Sometimes you can get acceptable results... Sometimes you get THE ELYSIAN...
