A Dinosaur in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport

Curious grand gestures in public space:

Chicago’s O’Hare Airport has this huge replica of a Brachiosaurus skeleton, a plant-eating dinosaur that apparently lived 150 million years ago. I’d love to meet the airport officials who approved this. Fascinating for its extreme absurdity — and its innovative use of the atrium’s verticality.

Bloomberg, we need one of these at JFK! Okay, outside JFK would be cool too. Attracts tourists. Just like those $15 million fabricated waterfalls. Probably cheaper.
