actually, if the renderings are to be believed, the ripples look as if they're the result of the winds coming off lake Michigan rippling on the building's walls. It's one of the most impressive designs I've seen and a perfect example of how up until recently such ideas would have been next to impossible to actualize without the help of computers.

On top of that construction is coming along at quite a pace, when I first saw the Aqua proposals I was worried that it might be one of those projects that sounds impressive, but never gets much further than models. I was gladly proven wrong.

Studio/Gang has a nifty Flash video on their project website which explains the balcony placements: http://www.studiogang.net/site/projects_c1.htm


The balcony patterns are not random - they relate to carefully plotted sightlines (in other words, that seemingly random pattern on the exterior is actually functional):




But do watch the video. Really beautiful.

This one is growing really fast!

Hope the cladding works start as fast as it started in the Trump Tower

This is an extremely interesting building. When I stayed at the swissotel , I had a room that overlooked the site. i took photos of it, but there two weeks old. Anyway, I wonder what this will look like in reality. Hopefully amazing as it looks in the renders. Great to see it going up in chicago
