Bertrand Goldberg’s River City, Chicago

Bertrand Goldberg's River City

Bertrand Goldberg’s River City, envisioned as a self-sustaining microcosm–a home, a marina, an apothecary, and a grocery store in one. I love this quote about the project: “And finally, in River City [Goldberg] has the chance to affect the future course of Chicago by integrating his ideas in curving mega structure half-a-mile long, sinuously following the river southward into the decayed industrial tundra of the old city of smoke and steel which is being replaced by the new city of microchips, services and social democracy.” (Allan Temko, A Guide to 150 Years of Chicago Architecture)
