Marina Towers architect really tall

Bernard Goldberg is really tall. Look at this photo. He’s so tall that he could have built Mariners towers by himself.

Actually, the photo comes from treehugger.com and they have a quick blurb about the “1945: Creativity and Crisis, Chicago Architecture and Design of the World War II Era” show at the Art Institute. One of the things that Goldberg did to save steel was build plywood rail cars.

I saw the 1945: Creativity and Crisis show at the Art Institute on the recommendatino of Blair Kamin, the Chicago Tribune Architecture columnist. I did my new living room in retro-40’s style [designers like Eames, Nelson, Naguchi, materials like plywood and bakelite] and wanted to learn more. Blair pointed to the exhibit at the A.I. just before it opened and I’ve gone through it twice already. I highly recommend it.

The show is on the second level in gallery 227 if I’m not mistaken. I’ll check with the museum and post again if that information is not correct.

Wouldn’t the show be in the architecture gallery? That neat curving space.

Yes, that’s the same space, spud. I should have referenced it as such. Gallery 227 IS the Architecture Gallery.
