Exposed Against Blue Skies

Exposed Against Blue Skies

Architectural lines, towering and exposed against blue skies. First one built in 2007 in Chicago, the Aqua Tower was designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects.

Below, topped with a Romanesque dome, stands the Mercer Building in Louisville, Kentucky. Next to it is the easily recognizable, Wrigley Building on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.

  1. Amazing photos as always. The Aqua Tower reminds me of a building in Atlanta with offset floors as the building goes up. It sits right on I-75 and I always said it would fall first if the fault line that runs under the city were to get active. Architect are amazing with their imagination.

    • Thanks, Anita. I agree, architects are so creative. Apparently, a lot of people didn’t like the Aqua Tower when it was first built. The architect’s inspiration was the shoreline of Lake Michigan which is within walking distance of this building. Personally, I think she was successful. 😊
