Same architect, floor plan and design. 9 meters shorter. No wonder I love First Canadian Place. The horizontal lines make a massive difference however. Affects the appearance in a very significant way.
A couple photos from a couple weeks ago from my trip.
“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said ‘I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.” -Sam Haskins
I am definitely pleased to have this tower among the collection in Chicago. It has a large and graceful presence, and, despite looking slightly dated now, I think it will only improve with age. Here are a few shots from my collection:
I don't want to crash the party, but what is so great about this building? The only positive design attributes it really has is its vertical height, and the lines on its side. It's nothing but a tall, gray box.
Gotta be the most in-your-face skyscraper ever. Just so out there and present.
Almost arragont in it's nature. Kinda like a French chick at a crowded bar, nothing special, but stand out and has a unique yet twisted presence.
Anyone? With me here? LOL
