Fodor's Review

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.
