DescriptionThe Trump International Hotel and Tower is a modern skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois. The building was designed by architect Adrian Smith of the firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. The tower is located at 401 North Wabash Street, on the north shore of the Chicago River. The skyscraper is named after real estate developer Donald Trump, and at a height of 1389 feet it was the second tallest building in the U.S. at the time of its completion in 2009. The mass of the building steps back at three separate heights as it rises from the ground. These step backs are intended to help the building relate to the heights of the neighboring buildings. Trump tower contains 2.6 million square feet of space on 92 floors. This includes retail space, a parking garage, a hotel, a restaurant and private condominiums.

Paul Hasara, Chicago Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement Paul Hasara was raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Ohio State University. In his early architectural career Paul was trained to draw buildings by hand using a straight edge, ruler and compass. The drafting process helped Paul to develop an interest in abstract compositions of lines, curves and shapes. His architectural background is the inspiration for his photographic vision. Paul lives in Chicago, and is currently photographing the architecture of this great city. He also has an extensive catalog of classic car images that have been posted online. Paul will soon be posting a series of window reflection photographs created between 1998 and 2004.
