Bertrand Goldberg at the Art Institute of Chicago
Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention is on view at the Art Institute through January 15, 2012.
A Chicago native, Goldberg is known for the Marina City, Raymond Hilliard Homes, and River City projects. As both an engineer and architect, Bauhaus-trained Goldberg envisioned re-invigorated downtowns with multi-use buildings. He created urban communities utilizing industrially innovative concepts such as prefabricated modules and cantilevered construction. The Astor Tower of the early 1960s is contemporary to Marina City.
Goldberg also designed private homes, furniture, refrigerated railroad cars, and a mobile Fumigation Unit for the military.
