A young 28-year-old Wright designed this complex comprising 46 rent-controlled dwellings where he aimed to improve the living conditions of the lower classes. The complex is laid out around a semi-public courtyard which has access through large arches and in which the front doors to the ground floor dwellings are located. An open deck, with entrances at different points, runs along the top floor. He avoids covered communal spaces. The complex was partially demolished in 1974. Kenneth Frampton.

A city within the city was the slogan used by the architect to promote this mixed use complex. Marina City was the fi rst high-rise residential project built in post-war Chicago. The need to revitalize the downtown area once again allowed mixed-use in the early 1960s. The developer’s aim was to provide apartments and studios to let for offi ce workers to avoid the daily commute to the surrounding suburbs. A raised common plaza, with fi ve buildings inserted from below fl oor level, offe.

Chicago’s chain of parks and boulevards is part of an infrastructure constructed in the 19th century for creating green open space in neighbourhoods throughout the city. The wide-open spaces set up an opportunity for increased density and scale in the architecture along their edges. However, these edges have remained extremely underutilized in many neighbourhoods.

Living on top: the tower

Between 1945 and 1951, Mies van der Rohe built two 26-storey towers on the banks of Lake Michigan in Chicago. These two towers, numbers 860 and 880 on Lake Shore Drive, are two identical prisms, the direct result of an attempt to give shape to an idea, that of the glass skyscraper. With these two buildings, the progress of American technology can be identified with an architecture based on strict constructive principles, on slenderness and transparency.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s solo career starts in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb where the architect builds his own house in 1887. During the day, Wright worked downtown for Adler & Sullivan, while in the evenings he completed the design of residences in the surrounding lots of his neighbourhood. When the boss found out Wright was undertaking freelance commissions, he was invited to leave the company.

When in 1830 the land of present-day Chicago was only made up of woods, prairies, marshland and rivers, nobody could have imagined that in the year 2010 lack of space would already be an important issue. This city, which owes its name to the Potowatami word Checaugau (wild onion), is divided into two neighbourhoods clearly differentiated by their density of land use: the financial centre or Loop and the residential neighbourhoods.

SOM’s website states that the John Hancock Center is the “world’s first mixed-use (hybrid) high-rise”. We do not know if this assertion is in fact accurate, but we do not really mind. There are some other facts we find more relevant: this 433 metres, 100-storey tower contains offices, retail, housing, parking, a TV and radio broadcast facility and a public observatory with the best views of Chicago (we include some of them in the post).
