Chicago Buildings – Bertrand Goldberg’s Marina City and River City 2

One of the most interesting architects o build in Chicago was Bertrand Goldberg.  Known for many works, especially his Marina City, and River City projects. He had other projects in and around  the city, unfortunately, I did not have a chance to photograph them.

Upon seeing this view, I was awe struck.  With both parents being architects, I had known of this project since I was very young, yet I never imagined actually seeing it up close.
