860–880 N. Lake Shore Drive Review
These twin apartment towers overlooking Lake Michigan were an early and eloquent realization of Mies van der Rohe's "less is more" credo, expressed in the high-rise. I-beams running up the facade underscore the building's verticality; inside, mechanical systems are housed in the center so as to leave the rest of each floor free and open to the spectacular views. Completed in 1951, the buildings are a prominent example of the International Style, which played a key role in transforming the look of American cities.
