:: Chicago Spire ::

:: Chicago Spire ::


The Chicago Spire is a supertall skyscraper under construction in Chicago, Illinois.
The skyscraper will stand taller than Chicago's Sears Tower and New York's upcoming Freedom Tower,
As well as Toronto's CN Tower, thereby becoming
North America's tallest free-standing structure and the world's tallest all-residential building.
The building was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
The Chicago Spire is scheduled to be completed in 2011 with 150 floors.

Architectural masterpiece!
Would love to see something like this in Singapore.

Wow, it's really long and thin. Oh I mean tall and thin. Looks quite phallic, like those dildos that are sold as "neck massagers."

Given Chicago's strong winds I wonder how much it will sway.

The Burj Dubai is another iconic skyscraper:

oooh look like a d**k...hahah

yesh i tout this is a very cool and nice architecture! would be lovely to stay in a residential place like this one! haha

I dunno, I keep thinking baguette! lol

the bridge at safti mi :X

I know it's going to be architecturally astounding... But I can't help but associate it to a drill bit :P

Why building with phallic like structure always connected to being superior or the best?? Haha.. nice structure anyway.

Its nice but somehow the image of a ribbed dildo comes into mind ever so often.

Dildo was what came to my mind first too. :S

Looks scary like it can topple anytime

Well it is firmly DRILLED to the ground as you can see. =P

haha

oh well hope it's deep enuf then

;>

samseng:

its a structural feat more of an aki masterpiece...an iconic feature that adds to the developer's and country's race for no. 1 and ego...

structural masterpiece nonetheless.
how difficult is it to build something like this?

and time for you to get a blog, mr samson!

the poor structural engineers..
