The Trib Goes Nuts for Building in Chicago

With the Air and Water Show a complete bust due to too much rain here, the Chicago Tribune must’ve seen the extra white spaces in the Sunday edition and decided that it was as good time as ever to fill it up with a whole slew of stuff on architecture. Of greatest interest to us was “Spire Twists Into Existence” about now being able to see the foundation for the Santiago Calatrava Spire, the US’ tallest building come 2010. But it doesn’t stop there. They have a great big infographic about how building a skyscraper has changed over the years, lots of info about the Waterview, and so on. Like we said, it’s a whole batch of stuff and all linked from the story above.
