Extremely local news: Safe sex on the beach

From Architecture Chicago PLUS:
What's the Point?
"It's an expressway for moving bicycles and people with the least possible resistance, a giant stretched condom sheathing the observer from any conception of the natural intersection of water and land..."

Okay, well, I grew up playing with the chunks of asbestos that washed up a stone's throw from a nuke plant with an unimpressive safety record, so get that condom on. Appeals to "interest" and "wonder" just don't do it for me, sorry.

Besides, there's nothing natural about Chicago's lakefront. What's to preserve?
