I ran across an article in the New Yorker this weekend. It is by architectural critic Paul Goldberger about the new Aqua Building in Chicago by Studio Gang. The article is particularly interesting because not only did the design emerge as unique for a tall building, but the form also dispersed winds so that mass dampers were not required. Form and Function in an interesting harmony that we’d all like to achieve. Check out the article: and the Studio Gang website:

    I actually posted about this building a few months or so ago. I thought it was a very interesting design. There are some additional images (including a very cool night image) in the previous post.
