"Aqua Waves" Aqua Building ~ Chicago, Illinois ~ USA The Aqua building is a 82 story mixed use residential skyscraper in downtown Chicago. The design team was led by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects. The building has a really interesting and unique design. The patios have a wave shape that makes the building look like it is a series of waves. At the right time of day, the sun is rim lighting the front edge of the patios and the underneath side is in shadow. This image is looking at some of those patio shapes at that rim lighting time of day. All comments are welcome.
