When: now thru January 15, 2012
Where: The Art Institute of Chicago

From a post-war suburban community, multi-unit dwellings and single family residences to furniture and trucks, the work of Bertrand Goldberg follows a fairly straight trajectory of experimentation from the Bauhaus in the 30s through Chicago in the 80s.

By maintaining an aesthetic of clean lines while pushing engineering envelopes—none more famous than Marina City and River City in Chicago—Goldberg’s sculptural forms and engineering feats left us with outstanding dramatic effects.
