problems with Modern Wing

The Tute is suing the designer/planner/engineer/consultant firm, ARUP, $10 million for problems encountered with the Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago.

more at Some of the problems the Tute had to address during the construction process were cracks in the subfloor, improper air circulation for art, and whistling sounds from the flying carpet roof. It’s a tremendous building. I hope everything works out for the Tute.

Wait. The Modern Wing at the Art Institute has the ability to WHISTLE? And they don’t want it to whistle anymore? Here they have a magical building, and they want to strip away its magical powers? Be very careful, Art Institute. Be very very careful.
