Aqua Tower by Studio Gang Architects

The newest skyscraper in Chicago by Studio Gang Architects is quite impressive.  Each floor slab is different, giving the building it’s unique form.  I can’t wait to make it back to Chicago to get a look at this first hand.

Jeanne Gang lectured at Drury a few years back.  She sat in a critique for our fifth year project.  I remember her having an “I’m better than this place” attitude, which is unfortunate that she has fallen into the egocentric world of being a “starchitect.”

Besides her personal view of midwestern liberal arts colleges, the building is beautiful.  Full article and more photos can be found at the contemporist.
