  Inside Marina City

  1. A photograph of my Marina City Condo (Chicago, IL USA) with me reading, French in Three Months, was on the wall of the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC). The photograph is part of the exhibit, Inside Marina City: This exhibit is a project of Iker Gil and Andreas E. G. Larsson.  It showed 17 September 2011– 15 January 2012 in AIC Gallery 286.
  2. Now another photograph of my Marina City Condo is again on the wall at the Art Institute of Chicago.  It is now part of a Marina City Video that is now is on the wall at the Art Institute of Chicago. The video titled, Marina City Video, and is part of the Exhibit: Past Forward: Architecture and Design, at the Art Institute in Gallery 285. Hope you have time to see me in the video on a wall of the AIC.

In addition, Marina City is celebrating its fiftieth year. Construction started 22 November 1960 and the first tenants moved in in 1962. 

Andy Warhol said that “Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”.  I have been on the AIC wall for 120 days, more than most people's 15 minutes and it has been a great deal of fun.  I stopped by the photo of me on Sun., 1/15/12 for my last look. 


Check out the United Airline poster of Marina City below.

If you saw the show and if you look closely at the Gil and Larsson photograph of my Marina Tower's Condo (and me) titled, The Reader, you could have seen some wind turbines, a PV cell, a hardhat for visiting wind and solar construction sites and my speaker's badge from WindPower 2007 where I presented my paper, The Current Technology and Economics of Storing Wind Electricity as Hydrogen, 3-6 June 2007, Los Angeles, CA.

The Gil and Larsson Exhibition, Inside Marina City, is a companion to the retrospective exhibition, Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention, 17 September 2011– 15 January 2012, AIC Galleries 283–285. Bertrand Goldberg was the architect of Marina City.



I live in the right tower

Two images below are from the show, Skyscraper: Art and Archetecture Against Gravity, now at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA)

When you see, Transparent City # 6, 2007, at the MCA, the image is so sharp that you can see the patio furniture on my patio deck.  I live in the tower to the right. Count down from the top of the right tower about 20 floors until you see my neighbor's 3 semicircle lines of light on their patio deck. My deck is to the left of my neighbor's deck. I am now off the wall of both the AIC and the Pinkcomma Gallery but now my patio furniture is now on the wall of the MCA. Look closely on the photo and you can see my white patio furniture on my deck. You can also see my neighbor's patio furniture. There is a lot to see at the MCA. My patio furniture is just for fun. Enjoy your visit.



Brian Droste's cocktail napkin sketch of Marina Towers won Architectual Record's 2012 (third annual) cocktail napkin contest.  Brian, a 2010 Notre Dame graduate and intern at Wight & Company, a Chicago architecture and engineering firm, won in the non-professional category.
