Serenely organized and rectilinear to the nth degree, this condominium structure is nevertheless a dynamic object, its balconies projecting like ribs and its two towers (originally envisioned as separate buildings) seemingly sliding past one another. Jurors lingered over the organizational details of the structure, as if examining an Escher drawing in all its complexity. The two masses stand perpendicular to one another, giving one stellar views north to the Loop and the other pride of place along one of the South Loop's main thoroughfares.
