It's like a celebrity lineup of famous Chicago architecture. Right in the middle is the twin towers Marina City. Moving right is Mies Van der Rohe's IBM Building of pure black boxy delight. Then you got new kid on the block Trump Tower under construction--these days nowadays grow so fast--and tall!
Moving down is the London Insurance Building. Which i have to admit is one of the WEIRDEST perspectives I've ever seen of this building. Look at how it's got such an odd shape. Goodness, was the architect drunk? Snap-a-licious what is the name of that tall spirey building? It's always been that no-name tower. To the left of mr. mysterious is the blue Hotel 71. Normally I would never mention Hotel 71 as a celebrity, but it just has the most amazing view on its top floor. I <3 you Hotel 71.
The golden spire of the Hard Rock Hotel apparantly has a red dot on the top. Ummm, I think Google Maps accidentally left behind one of its markers. You'll have to buy one of the 20x30 prints to see it.
BaAaAaAaAa! BaAaAaAaAa-dooooomp! In comes marching the ever-robotic, the ever-transformerarific, the Prudential 2 Center. Just don't get impaled by its spire. Happily sitting to the left to this spear is the Jewelers building with its cute little dome. Moving back up the river, you can see the Greek-influenced teal roof of the R.R. Donnelley Building. OH wow, speaking of teal roofs the Merchandise Mart across the street is sporting this fashion as well.
