Preserving sculpture, and buildings.
2 posts coming later today.

1. Magadalena come back! Is your sculpture ‘Agora’ in Grant Park supposed to rust like this? It’s on most of the feet. Call for Dr. Scholl!


2. My thoughts on the Farwell lobotomy. The proposal to take down the stately facade on Michigan Avenue, rebuild what’s behind it, largely as a parking lot – though the first two floors would remain retail – and the top floor would be for the folks living in the proposed adjacent condo tower. The developer would then reface the new infrastructure with the old stones and ornament. That proposal was famously not advanced last week by a usually compliant Chicago Commission on Landmarks. But I think it will still go forward. And I have more thoughts on the project.

Later today, as time goes on.

Til then,
-E
