Created to be a city within a city and to attract middle class families back to downtown during a period of suburban migration, architect Bertrand Goldberg's urban experiment is hard to miss.  Despite being a student of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Bertrand believed that since no right angles exist in nature, none should exist in architecture.  Though Meis' influence can easily be seen in the modernist principles of symmetry, repetition and absolutely no use of applied ornamentation.
