Just because technology allows you to live outside the box by standing outside the building in a box — should you?
It seems the people who run the Sears Tower in Chicago were bored with their building and so they added “viewing boxes” you can now use to stand outside the building on the 103rd floor to look out and down at the death waiting for you below.
I am left breathless wondering “Why?” This seems like a terrible idea that is ripe for abuse, purposeful shattering, and intentional destruction by those who seek to smash the aesthetic of yearning and beauty.
Is the Second City having Grand Canyon Skywalk envy?
As Chicago shudders under the heels of the Sears Tower of Terror Boxes, we can only hope this ridiculous idea doesn’t end in a free fall to remember.
There’s no way out from down.
