Chicago Returns To Architectural Relevance
Once known for its elegant and functional buildings, Chicago has in recent decades lapsed into a malaise of architectural stagnation. But with a $475 million park set to open this month, Chicagoans will add another famous architect to their city's silhouette - Frank Gehry. Some local critics think that $300 million in cost overruns could have done more than added a fancy bandstand for the city.
