Chicago is definitely experiencing a condo-building boom.
Besides the 92-story Trump tower, the 150-story Chicago Spire, the 87-story condo building called Aqua is also shooting toward the skies of the Windy City.
It’s being built right across the street from my workplace and going up so fast that I just now noticed the darn thing.
The balconies on this thing are so incredibly unique. Each floor has a different configuration of balconies so that, when complete, they’ll give the entire building an undulating effect.
SO. . . VERY. . . COOL!!!
I cannot imagine the complexity of the mathematical equations those balconies must require in order to specify their dimensions.
Get this - - the designer/architect is a woman, Jeanne Gang.
I so wish I could have cheated off her tests during high school algebra. I’ll bet she could make those quadratic equations just sing.
Yes, the Aqua building is definitely unique.
