Jeff Carter to save Walter Gropius, Bauhaus

In 2016, the Olympic games will take place in Rio de Janeiro, the most beautiful city in the world. Of course I am not very honest  by saying this as being brazilian 🙂 So I checked who lost the competition against Rio and I realized that Chicago had a very serious participation file. They had a huge plan to replace an historical old area of the city with a modern olympic town. Some people, in love with the american Architectural design of the beginning of the century were not happy with all these demolitions. Lots of great buildings would be taken down to the ground because of a “stupid olympic game project”. So finally some people in Chicago were happy that their city did not win as they thought things would remain as they are.  Unfortunately for them, the mayor has great ambitions for his town and the project remains….
