Marina City

Wednesday, 11 September 2013


A mixed-use residential/commercial complex in Chicago from the sixties, designed by Bertrand Goldberg. You can read more about the building on archdaily.

These towers seem to be everywhere - remember the cover of Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot? But they've also found a place in my heart, I'm fascinated by the unconventionally shaped apartments inside. If you're interested in peeking in then Apartment Therapy did a house tour at one of the apartments.
Photographers Iker Gil and E. G. Larsson documented its inhabitants and spaces 

And if you're heading to Chicago to take a closer look, check out the Chicago Greeter program, where knowledgeable denizens give free (architecture) tours of the city. That's how my first meeting with the towers came to be.

  2. Thanks, Bea! These apartments are really something, would be tricky to work with that floor plan for sure.
