Buildings and Bums

Tramps here look a lot more resilient than the ones back home. Something to do with the super harsh winters I guess. I often think that a plush range of cuddly tramps might be a good idea, what with all the lovely textures and layers they wear... Then I realise it's a silly idea.

Here's Marina City. It was one of the first (1964) residential high rise buildings in the USA, and was built to encourage urban regeneration. It pioneered the parking/residential/office space model for skyscrapers and has been used as a template for buidings around the world. At the base is access to the river, with loads of swanky moorings.

And they look like corn-cobs - Something to do with honoring the farming heretige of the mid west.
