Trump Tower Chicago, Wrigley Building, and a glimpse of 330 North Wabash

Urban canyon walls–Trump Tower Chicago and its neighbors. Each setback of the Trump Tower is a shout-out to a nearby building: the lowest is aligned with the top of the Wrigley Building, a monument to chewing gum in six shades of terra cota; the second points to Marina City, another one of Bertrand Goldberg’s “city-within-a-city” creations (not captured in this photograph); and the third is at the height of 330 North Wabash (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe‘s last skyscraper in the United States–its dark corner, starkly minimalist, is peeking out on the left).
