Slideshow: Aqua Tower - Chicago, Illinois - Designed by Studio Gang


The Aqua tower, designed by Studio Gang, has received a lot of well deserved press over the past year since its completion. However, what has failed to be discussed is the dismal condition of the podium and how the tower interacts with the street. It almost seems as if a different designer worked on the tower vs. the podium as they have no clear relationship. These images capture the undulating balconies from a variety of angles, unclose and as glimpses through the surrounding towers.

Last summer I was lucky enough to be invited to Chicago as a guest of DuPont Corian® to see their new product line and its integration with the DIRTT wall system. As part of the trip I also got to explore the city, see its amazing architecture, and visit NEOCON. This slideshow, as well as few others that will be posted in the coming weeks was a result of their generosity. Check out the Corian® Design Facebook page for more information on their new products: http://www.facebook.com/CorianDesign

  5. Hi Christine,

    Thank you so much for hosting. I know I've been much delayed in my coverage. It's been a hectic, busy, exciting and event filled year for me. Unfortunately this blog got neglected too often. I will have some posts about Corian® and DIRTT as well as more slide shows soon.

  8. Boilx Slim is the perfect combination of wrapper, filler,
    and expertly constructed with Indonesian grown wrappers.

    Although Boilx Extract is derived from the root of the matter is that they lack
    focus. If their state of one's human anatomy is still not sweet enough for you then?

  9. triactol diet pill is a very common grape in France.
    Wisely, the residents of Turner's Grove agree. Tea tree oil appears to achieve its organic design with better effectiveness.
