I'm so glad they put Chicago tax money to good use I mean, it's so very important to have a bright shiny metallic bean smack on Michigan Avenue to attract mindless tourists after a day of shopping the mag mile and lunching at the American Girl Place. As far as I'm concerned the whole of Millenium park is a complete fucking eyesore. And worse than even the bean, those god-awful fountains that sit incongruously next to the Art Institute's architectual loveliness. And then don't forget the music pavillion, that looks rather like a plane crashed in Grant Park (which I suppose goes rather well the spaceship that landed on the parthenon that used to be Soldier Field a bit further south). Daniel Burnham must be spinning in his grave..
