Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention

Throughout the post-WWII period, architect Bertrand Goldberg brought his dramatic sculptural forms and innovative engineering to Chicago with projects like the dramatic Marina City development. This website is designed to complement an in situ exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago that affords visitors a look into Goldberg's vision. The materials here are divided into five primary areas, including "Themes", "Selected Works" and "Inside Marina City". Visitors should click on "Themes" to look over brief essays and selected items that cover Goldberg's work on towers, hospitals, and modern city planning. In the "Selected Works" area, visitors can peruse high-resolution images of Goldberg's drawings, sketches, and so on. All told, there are 208 images in this area. Finally, visitors shouldn't miss the "Inside Marina City" area. Here they will find photographs from a two-year project created by Iker Gil and Andreas E.G. Larsson designed to document the lives of residents in this rather unique structure.
