Welcome to Archigames, wherein nominated local buildings of a particular style are matched up in sudden death pairings to decide the most suitable representative of said style. This week it's Beaux Arts, and the last semifinal pairing is below. Brush up on the nominees, but always defer to your tastes when casting your vote. Polls close tomorrow at noon. Thanks for playing!
How 'bout a round of applause for our remaining semifinalists, the London Guarantee Building and Union Station. In the opening round, London Guarantee simply obliterated to the Fine Arts Building, capturing some 75 percent of the vote. Union Station, on the other hand, had a much tougher go of it, barely edging out a win against the old and majestic Cook County Hospital. So, is Union Station's iconic Great Hall enough to overcome London Guarantee's obvious height advantage and prominence of site? You be the judge!
