Rafael F. Bermejo added this to Marina City Towers: Life Inside an Architectural Icon
Photos by Andreas E.G. Larsson Architecture Told Through Its InhabitantsLarsson’s images showed that — although the building retained the hard and singular architecture inherent to Bertrand Goldberg’s style, as well as a formal homogeneity — the residents had transformed their apartment interiors to suit their tastes. “There are 900 apartments in total,” says Iker Gil of Mas Studio. “Seventy percent are one bedroom, 20 percent are studio apartments and 10 percent have two bedrooms. We photographed 40 different ones. Overall, this is a very diverse community.“There are students, architects and older people who have lived here for 50 years,” Gil says. “It’s a very interesting mix. We wanted to tell the stories of the people who live here without revealing their identities, but also show the architecture through the residents. We wanted to give a view of how people live in this icon of modern architecture in Chicago.”
