Jahn's Vision for Navy Pier

New, 1 comment

The first proposal for the redevelopment of Navy Pier is in, and it's a doozy! German-born architect Helmut Jahn proposes covering the theme park with huge curvy canopy, adding 750,000 square feet (!) of new retail, and building a new 500-foot Ferris wheel that would "cantilever off a geometrically-skewed building." Blair Kamin appreciates Jahn's imagination. [Cityscapes]
