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: http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/skyline/2010/02/01/100201crsk_skyline_goldberger and the Studio Gang website:  http://www.studiogang.net/projects_e1.htm
