James R. Thompson Center by Serhii Chrucky

With the James R. Thompson Center set to go on sale in the next two years, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation placing the building on its 11 most endangered list, I thought now would be a good time to post the images I’ve made of the building so far. Here’s hoping that Helmut Jahn’s monument to transparent governance in the city that works is not remodeled into unrecognizable oblivion.
