The Art Institute of Chicago Modern Wing

Sure, it’s got a Renzo Piano stamp on it, but I can’t help but feel like the “starchitects” we looked to in the 80’s and 90’s for inspiration have gone off their feed.  Gehry’s become a one-trick pony.  Hadid churns out fantasy after fantasy but hardly any get built.  And did I.M. Pei go into Witness Protection or something?
