evils? come on! This is architecture at its finest. My problem with version C is the box top. This needs to soar upward, the box just stops it.

I agree with you. B & A were the best lookin. Wish things weren't the way the way they are. I would have rather liked to see the old fordham spire grace Chicago's skyline. Thanks for posting all the proposals.

Thankfully, it looks like both this and the other ugly spire are DOA. I cannot STAND 'twisted' buildings. This and the other nasty thing would have been horrible additions to Chicago's skyline.

I liked versions B & C the best. The latest one still looks like a wang to me.

I like the original proposal, but I think CS is more beautiful.
