Chicago corncobs. Thoughts? 🌽

Everyone loves Marina City, some functional aspects of the design have not aged well, but overall, the unique design is still one of the highlights of Chicago’s architecture.

Marina City is a mixed-use residential/commercial building complex in Chicago, Illinois. The complex consists of two corncob-shaped, 587-foot (179 m), 65-story towers, which include physical plant penthouses. It also includes a saddle-shaped auditorium building and a mid-rise hotel building, contained on a raised platform next to the Chicago River. Beneath the platform, at river level, is a small marina for pleasure craft, giving the structures their name. Designed by Bertrand Goldberg, Marina City was the first building in the United States to be constructed with tower cranes. Source

Chapter Five

What had been happening with Milo’s family the last month?

Martin Murphy and family hadn’t been idle in their captivity. Martin especially had been lying in wait for the security put upon them to lapse for long enough to make good their escape.

Brigitte had only dared to hint at who she had entrusted Milo’s safety to, careful not to reveal too many details— just in case their captors were listening in.

Martin was glad that after a week of searching he had overheard from their captors that there hadn’t even been the slightest indication of Milo’s whereabouts.

Whoever was taking care of Milo seemed to be able to manage Murphy’s Law well enough that even people who were looking for instances of Murphy’s Law couldn’t find them.

Then they were made to do that press conference. Martin hoped that if whoever had Milo saw it, they would be able to tell from his stress on the word -safe- that they were to continue to keep Milo hidden, and under no circumstances should they turn him over to the authorities.

vast-silentspaces  asked:

I was wondering if you had any industrial precedents that you've posted on here. We are designing a mixed use building in an industrial area of a city for a project at my university. I have only been able to find industrial renovations that are from mostly concrete or brick existing buildings but all the buildings in this city's industrial area are mainly sheet metal. Any help is appreciated!

The reason why it is that way has to do with the stresses a renovation puts on an existing structure. Typically a metal industrial building is design with the bare minimum structural design requirements to hold a shelter, therefore is close to impossible to retrofit such structures for other uses. In those cases the only cost effective solution is to demolish and build new from the ground up.

So the examples you will find almost always end up creating an interior substructure to house any additional program. Check out these examples:
