Aqua Tower, Chicago

The Aqua is an 832 feet skyscraper that was named the world's best new building by Emporis when it opened in 2009.

The Aqua is an 832 feet skyscraper that was named the world's best new building by Emporis when it opened in 2009. The most distinguishing feature of this 82-storey mixed-use residential high-rise is its series of undulating balconies, which extend as far as twelve feet from the building's walls, giving the building a surreal 'rippling' effect. Designed by Jeanne Gang and team, It features a remarkable curtain wall that compliments wavy balconies. Though impressive from any angle, it's best viewed relative to the water - either from a boat tour or the riverwalk over in the Near North.
