With ALL the historical Chicago architects available why are we importing a German one, no disrespect intended. Those guys have never been on the Pier during a crowded Summer day. Navy Pier remains the #1 state attraction despite it obvious flaws. I say go back to Daniel Burnham's Chicago Plan and build a sister pier. How glorious would that look? The congestion of the single pier could ease, thus drawing more people. I look at that design above and immediately think, where's Chicago's influence? I refuse to believe there's not one local architect that can't come up with a better design. BK: Helmut Jahn is based in Chicago. We are not importing him.
