Chicago 1965

Chicagoans are back and forth about how they feel about Bertrand Goldberg's cylindrical Marina Towers. Evidently the apartments are "pie shaped" with the widest portion being the window. I worked on a commercial that involved a car driving off one of the Tower's parking garages and into the river. The Towers are definitely interesting to be in. There are below-street-level shops that cater to the residents. The whole place seemed like it's own world. Sort of like a frozen modern dream.
