A proposed 10-story residential and commercial building at 43rd Street and the Green Line on the South Side is among the projects that have been reviewed by the Chicago Design Committee.

Chicago developers worried last year that construction projects would face red tape after city planners added a layer to the approval process.

Peterson was tight-lipped about the change, but he told The Tribune reported that Scott Wilson, founder of the design company MINIMAL, which owns the building, asked for something to be done to its north wall.

So Peterson drew a silhouette over Kanye’s part. You’ve heard of it. It made the news last week, and then just as quickly got caught up in the storm of responses to Western anti-Semitism. What you didn’t hear was how Peterson gave his work more edge.
