The Bends

Two provocative high rises are expanding the neutrally buoyant facade of the urban landscape.   Studio Gang Architects recently finished the Aqua Tower (above) within the heart of Chicago and Frank Gehry's residential roost reigns over New York City (below).  While each has unique nuances, both remind me of the ebb and flow of the glacial moraines that carved the topography of the Northeast.  Add their fluid nod to the nearby waterways... and I fold over their fantasticness.
