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.
