In an interview with the Chicago Tribune’s Blair Kamin, Mayor Rahm Emanuel rattled off a few of his favorite buildings in the fair city of Chicago. Rahmbo steered clear of the supertalls—no Sears, Hancock, or Trump—and he’s apparently a thoroughly modern guy, skipping the old Water Tower, the Board of Trade or any classical designs.

The Broad Museum officially opens to the public this weekend, and has only been allowing visitors in Downtown Los Angeles for a couple days. But it has already started to rebel against its billionaire art-collector parents. Sources sent AN this picture revealing that the rambunctious young museum has gone and gotten its eyebrow pierced. What’s next for this quickly adapting Angelino? Implants and botox?

What exactly a “ballet about Steven Holl” means we are unsure, but here’s hoping that it stars Robert de Niro (a Holl doppelgänger) in his biggest dance role since his infamous “Twinkle Toes Shakespeare” role in Stardust (2007).
