CHICAGO (AP) — An architect wants to install four giant pig balloons to cover up the Trump name on the side of the president-elect's Chicago hotel.

New World Design says installation of the gold-colored pigs would "provide visual relief to the citizens of Chicago by interrupting the view of the ostentatious Trump Tower Chicago sign." The firm says in a blog post the giant pigs are a homage to one that's on the cover of Pink Floyd's 1977 album, "Animals."

It says the use of flying pigs refers to "the perceived chances of Mr. Trump winning the presidential election."

Architect Jeffrey Roberts calls the project "a bold visual response to the loud, illogical and frequently hateful expressions that engulfed the elections." He says the firm still is looking into how to implement it.
