Watch the video: The Chicago Tribune's architecture critic Blair Kamin joins us to talk about the status of two potential landmark buildings in Chicago–Marina City and the John Hancock Tower. He'll also update us on the signage at the Trump Tower.
In a recent column, Kamin wrote this of the Trump Tower sign:
The city approved the sign and for the foreseeable future, we're stuck with it. No legal Clearasil can remove Trump's self-inflicted urban acne. Attempts to characterize it as a symbol of "hate speech" — an idea some readers floated after the real estate developer, reality TV star and front-running Republican presidential candidate characterized Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and drug dealers — are destined to go nowhere.
