Chicago's Aqua Building: Modern and Sculptural

Chicago's Aqua Building: Modern and Sculptural

The 86-story residential skyscraper known as Aqua is located in the Lakeshore East portion of downtown Chicago. Its name is suggestive of its lakeside location as well as the wave-like forms that give the building exterior its organic and sculpted quality. The blue-green tint of the windows continues the aquatic motif. Aqua is the work of architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects, and is the third tallest building in the world that was designed by a female architect.
