In any case, this crooked shape is not only an unimportant formal signal but rather it is additionally a system to expand the perspectives and augment sun oriented shading. What’s more, by taking a gander at the plans we see a sane structure, consistent with the Mies heritage in the city.
The outline for Aqua utilizes design to catch and reinterpret the human and outside associations that happen all the more normally when living near the ground. Strategically chiseling the state of each floor piece offers agreeable open air porches, where neighbors can calmly and easily interface when coveted, and also the perspectives of Chicago milestones, exploring sight lines around the corners and through the holes between existing structures.

Aqua Tower is merged by a characteristic, site-specific arrangement process. As opposed to beginning with the objective of making a symbol, the atmosphere and perspectives shape of the building, mashing it into its environment and treating the building and its condition as interconnected not independent. Despite the fact that it might seem by all accounts, to be formally expressive, it is equivalent amounts of information and creative energy.
