Bertrand Goldberg's Awesomeness Will Not Die


Of the many wonderful architect celebutante personalities we have had the pleasure of meeting just before their deaths we have neglected to mention Bertrand Goldberg, who we met in the company of Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros in the cold Chicago winter of 1994. I would show you the pictures but they are on some kind of format called "35mm Kodachrome Slide". It was only a few summers before that I lounged around with a friend who lived in Marina City and marvelled at its innards as well as its striking street profile.

There are many, many more wonders to discover in the awesomeness that is Bertrand Goldberg's posthumous archive. My favorite: the Snyder House (pictured), which I am going to Avery to further research this weekend.
