Yeah I enjoyed watching this too. I did not appreciate some of the technical challenges posed by the site.

I kept thinking, please.. please let there be some sort of film crew documenting the rise of this historic super tall. Cannot wait to see the unique views they got for us! And more hopefully some insight into this complex project. Gahh... im so happy.

Also.. horray! First couple panels are up on the lobby, thanks victor. Looks shiny
I wish they could’ve talked about the blow through floor. I’m also surprised Jeanne Gang isn’t in this episode.

CTBUH Journal — “Case Study: Vista Tower, Chicago”

Right after that awesome doc, we get an official CTBUH write-up. Loving all the attention Vista is getting!! This document gets into the good stuff where the Building Giants video lacks.

Quote:
"Vista Tower, the subject of our case study, is situated prominently at the intersection of the historic axes of the Chicago River and Lake Shore Drive. It is one thing to choose a significant location for the city's future third-tallest building; it is quite another to turn that location into a gateway that unites parkland with riverfront recreation, crossing beneath a three-level roadway that had blocked access for decades. On the one hand, the building is very much in the Chicago tradition of structural bravado; on the other, it uses that bravado to hearken a future where skyscrapers are unitary forces and no longer urban barriers."

— Daniel Safarik, Editor, CTBUH Journal

Watched about half the episode so far. Pretty incredible stuff, no doubt about it!
