I started thinking about it a couple of days ago when the Chicago Tribune's architecture critic complained about the spire atop the Trump International Hotel and Tower . He called it little more than a "toothpick."
I'm certainly not going to disagree. It's a shame of a structure, and a disgrace that it's not illuminated at night like the spires of the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center .
Looking out my window, other buildings with toothpicks large and small:
- Two Prudential Plaza
- AT&T Corporate Center (4)
- Grand Plaza (4)
- The Park Tower (4)
- Northwestern University's Feinberg Inpatient Pavilion (2)
If you can think of any others, post them in the comments section below.
