Do buildings stand like their architects?

    I think I finally figured it out. I could never understand why Trump Tower Chicago is turned the way it is. The most prominent way to see it, and the one most tourists will see, is from the Michigan Avenue bridge. And the building looks turned, twisted away.

    It doesn't look at you straight on forward, full frontal.

    Very much like the way its architect Adrian Smith stands for publicity photographs

    No? (smile)

    I'll ask him, during today's interview.
    -E

    Update: He just laughed that nice, short, Adrian Smith laugh.
