Marina City

Chicago's Marina City is one of North America's most visible and recognisable landmarks. The two 65 floor corn cob shaped buildings were completed in 1964 and had been designed by architect Bertrand Goldberg in 1959 to provide a mix of affordable residential housing as well as commercial space for the city's then declining downtown area.The twin building complex created a city within a city to include a supermarket, hotel, bank, cinema and laundrette together with restaurants and bars overlooking the Chicago River
