  I just toured this building. What an over indulgent piece of 'architecture'. Absolute junk. The tube is a novel idea, but the rest of the building looks like something from a bad realty TV show.

  What a terrible building to have to walk through every day. Nothing about it makes sense, and it really has no purpose. There isn't really anything in there that required building a building just to house it. Essentially the building is a warm hallway just to get from one side of campus to the other. Hardly something to spend huge amounts of money on. And get this: Rem Koolhaas, crock that he is, requires that the school pay large fines if they alter his building in any way, or even put posters and things on certain walls. Way to care more about your reputation than your client.

  Yea the building looks really cool, but as for functionality...its just ok...you could definately have gotten better use out of the space but its still a cool building...and to Mr. Kampert- a building and a sculpture should not be compared, if a building has the functionality of a sculpture then the building sucks

   Great design. I like interior mostly. The sociable and at once dramatic space. Great artificial pop-art-like materials. I,ve felt like I am in XXI century really.

  This building may look striking, but day-to-day use of it is not pleasant!

  Rem Koolhaas is showing Chicago (and the world)once again how great looks and fuctionality can be combined to a masterpiece in architechture.Folkert Postma, Chicago

  I just visited this building, and it looks great. The silver tube just amazes me to see how great Rem Koolhas really is with his work. I think it should be one of Chicago's top 10 best sculptures.
