Tear down a Mies in Chicago and put up Donkey Kong?

    On Lynn Becker's blog a commenter named Erik compares the Metra station designed to replace a Mies van der Rohe building slated to be torn down this summer to the very basic graphics in the old video game "Donkey Kong."

    I couldn't resist:





    Read about how Chicago will soon tear down an integral part of Mies van der Rohe's historic, groundbreaking campus for the Illinois Institute of Technology here.


    (Of course I believe in public transportation and that the stations should be accessible. I don't believe we need to tear down part of Mies's campus for this when vacant land stands on the other three sides of the intersection.)
