Chicago, 1992
Stanley Tigerman organized an exhibition where young architects in Chicago were asked to relocate and redesign landmark buildings in the city. Stranded Sears Tower was done for this exhibition and was an excercise in redrawing the 'bundled tubes' of the tower horizontally on an adjacent riverfront site.
