The Trump International Hotel and Tower. Chicago. 12 November 2016
Although not one of my favorite skyscrapers in the city, the glass structure provides drama 24 hours a day with light. Interesting shape captures light bouncing it twice and sometimes three times. Architect Adrian Smith of legacy agency Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, designed the building which is the second tallest in the United States surpassed in height only by the Sears — now — Willis Tower. It was Trump’s intention to build the tallest building in the world at this site, but scaled back after 9/11.
