Aqua Tower in USA, Chicago

Aqua Tower in USA, Chicago

Chicago has been home to hundreds of skyscrapers since 1885. The first building to be build was only 42 meters in height and was finished in 1891. The photos here are pictures of the New Water Tower also known as the Aqua Tower. The tower is built with the illusions of waves engulfing the entire tower. The tower has 82 stories and also has six levels of parking underneath the building. The tower has been built by Jeanne Gang who is the first woman to be commissioned with a project as big as this one. The tower has attracted a lot of attention and is one of the tallest structures in Chicago. The building is a part-residential and part-office complex and houses a lot of amenities like pools, gardens, gazebos and walking tracks. The building also contains a hotel that occupies the first 15 floors. The unique wave design of the building has got a lot of critique from architects but has been well received by everyone.
