From the always excellent site

From the always excellent site of James Lileks comes Minneapolis Past and Present: “Over 70 buildings and neighborhoods - the most complete account of Minneapolis architecture on the web. (I think.) (I hope.)”

I worked in the Metropolitan Center (formerly Lincoln Tower, now Anderson Consulting Tower or some such nonsense) for almost two years. It was really the only building downtown that had a lawn, and that was because they were originally going to build a companion building, but didn’t. So, there’s this huge lawn where a building should have been. The second building would have been a fine addition, but that lawn preserved my (and my coworkers) sanity on more than one occasion; it was nice to find a little nature in the city.
