Likened to everything from corncobs to the towers of Antonio Gaudí's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Bertrand Goldberg's twin towers were a bold departure from the severity of the International Style, which began to dominate high-rise architecture beginning in the 1950s. Completed in 1964, the towers house condominium apartments (all pie-shaped, with curving balconies); the bottom 19 stories of each tower are given over to exposed spiral parking garages. In addition to
the apartments and marina, the complex has four restaurants, the House of Blues nightclub, the Hotel Sax Chicago, and a huge bowling alley.
