i have to admit i felt a small pang of pride (followed by a rather large pang of awe) in discovering that a female architect led the design of Chicago’s Aqua Tower. i love to see a woman – in this case, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang –  holding her own, and with such creative ablomb, in a traditionally male-dominated field. not bad for a 13-year-old. design studio, that is.

    At last a high-rise tower that is sensual, memorable and visually literate. Bring Jeanne Gang to Australia – we need her urgently!

      jealous! this building blows my mind every time i see a photo of it. haven’t seen it in person yet, or the fair city of chicago for that matter, but it’s definitely on the list.
