On Mau's move to Chicago

Stumbled across an old post by Lynn Becker on designer Bruce Mau and his move to Chicago, and this quote got me:

"Chicago was built by people who grew tired of where they came from and fell in love with the city, in all its contradictions. Think Sullivan, Mies, Daniel Burnham. If Mau can disenthrall himself from the flatterers - sycophancy is one of Chicago's baser failings - and really engage the city, warts and all, he could be the next name in that line."
