I was always of the position that if they knock down two
we must build four. It's just the American way.

Starting from this premise inherently leaves an open area in the center.

I enjoyed the idea of connecting them all together, but not so.....blah

I was then inspired by a Lloyd Wright picture to connect them with
thin bridges or platforms that are only three or four floors high.
These would run in contrast to the vertical lines of the four towers.

I drew all this on a coffee break, while working inside Chicago's own
Auditorium Theatre. I tilted my head back to drink my cup of coffee
and stared up at Sullivan and Adler's perfectly accustic golden domed ceiling and thought to crown this drawing with it's own gold glass dome.

please comment, I would really like some professional opinions.
