Did you know the Chicago Title & Trust Building was supposed to have an identical twin? They would have made quite the duo.

The original design for the Waterview Tower. Okay this one really burns. I see the current filler building everyday on my walk to work and it burns. I always picture how awesome this 90 story, thousand footer would look there instead. With its lit crown standing proud right on the river it would of been great. Its also a reminder of how things can go wrong well after construction starts. This thing was already twenty something stories tall before going on hold! That really burned. Oh well.

Next up is Adolph Loos Tribune Tower proposal.
Architects from around the world submitted entries to the design competition for the tower, including some modern proposals that were ahead of their time. Instead of going modern they went neo-gothic with the winner. While very beautiful, a majority of the submissions were mostly "neo- something". But the submission by Adolph Loos stood out from all of them. Had it been submitted on time instead of as a joke (its a news column, get it?) this thing really would of stood out in the skyline, even to this day.

Very interesting! Have you by any chance modelled Eliel Saarinen's Chicago Tribune Competition Entry? As a Finn that would be very interesting to see.

I don't but could easily model that one. In fact I might model a few of the entries and show them all in one post.
