By the way, there's a chicken sandwich place right by Archer/Halsted a block away from the park... everyone should go to it... amazing sandwich and fries. Best spicy chicken sandwich I've had in my life!

Yeah Im ready for its taller twin now.


I never liked the idea of the [ twin towers ] to begin with but his one has certainly been hitting it totally out of the park!

Fantastic shot, solar!

This building is so freaking Chicago that it already kinda seems like it's always been there.

Such a natural fit. Mr. Vinoly, the southwall is forever in your debt.

This is hands down Rafael Vinoly's best high rise work in the U.S. In terms of context, like Steely noted, it's hard to beat. Up there with his Walkie Talkie tower in London and Mahler 4 in Amsterdam (which Bjark-Ingels appropriated for The Spiral in NY's Hudson Yards).

gotta love it

it even helps its neighbors be more acceptable design-wise (sorta)

by drawing attention away from them, yes, NEMA improves the entire south wall.

It is.

And - man did the southwall, and Chicago, ever dodge a bullet when P/H was taken out of the equation for the Indiana-Michigan parcel?! Remember those tacky, gimmicky towers they drew up for the previous owner? At least Musuem Park 3 was an actual design (where NEMA now stands), and 4 if I recall may have been just a placeholder/massing concept......but 3 was trash.

Looks fantastic. One of my favorite buildings here in a long time. One of the only buildings I can think of where the balconies make it better rather than worse (Aqua and Marina City are also in that club).

Are those ugly black squares on the south face going to remain? In the video on NEMA's website it shows those areas as glass.

Yes, they will remain

Skyguy_7 Aug 16, 2019 1:39 PM

^ Those black squares are louvers.

What I would have done is given up some space in the mechanical room and inset the louvers by 10 feet or so, giving the appearance of additional balcony space on that floor, and thus somewhat hiding the louvers.
