Chicago | James R. Thompson Center | 308 FT | 17 FLOORS

You can find awesome architecture in lots of small buildings, and this one was done by my favorite architect that designed Liberty Place in Philly, Helmut Jahn. I’m always mainly focused on tall skyscrapers, but little buildings like Solar Curve stun me.

I absolutely love this building and would hate to see it go.

Okay??? Nobody was talking about it going anywhere, in fact it’s the opposite. It’s staying and being filled by a large tenant.

There’s no reason for you to get hostile about this.

I’ve wanted to meet Helmut for a very long time, and it’s weird that when my interest of Liberty Place was in one of the highest peaks he suddenly died. To me it would be an honor to meet Evan just as much as Helmut. I didn’t even know he has a son! But good luck homie

This has to be a partial demolition, not a complete one right?

Yeah, it’s probably refering to a gut demo to clear floors, remove unneeded walls, etc. All possible renders just show a possible updated facade and the removal or painting of the building’s colorful aspects.
