Aquatic Inspiration in Chicago’s Aqua Building

by | Feb 28, 2012 | Reefs in Art | 0 comments

Recently, the city of Chicago took the title of “Coolest Apartment Building for Reefers” with this incredible building known as Aqua.  This luxury apartment building is 86 stories and contains deluxe amenities.  Many of the other buildings in the area sport some sort of water-themed facade, so despite it’s size, it actually fits into the area nicely.  One thing that is quite clear to readers of this blog, many artists take inspiration from the oceans, reefs and lakes, and we don’t expect this to stop any time soon.  While many buildings do indeed take clues from coral growth forms, when can we expect an architect to dive in and create a building that is clearly and utterly derived from coral patterns?
