Calatrava’s Chicago building tapers again!
With a thin shaft of light on the top.
Blair Kamin has the story. (Kudos Blair.)

I happened to be by Crown Hall that night, by coincidence, when Calatrava, the model and the gang were there.


I went to show “the Crown” to a friend from Berlin, Arnold Dreyblatt.
He loved it, except for the acoustic tile ceiling. He’s used to the beautifully finished ceiling of coffered steel up in Berlin’s new National Gallery, for which Crown Hall is the low-budget prototype.

Calatrava’s design for the Chicago Spire will change again. But the new design is better. The developer wants to break ground in June.
