Around Chicago, Bertrand Goldberg is best known as the architect of Marina City, the iconic “corncob-shaped” buildings located on the Chicago River. But with the exhibition Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention, the vast scope of his body of work will be explored for the first time.
Check out the images below for a behind-the-scenes look at curators Zoë Ryan and Alison Fisher working with museum conservators and preparators to install architectural drawings, models, and furniture. You may recognize the model for Prentice Women’s Hospital, but I bet you didn’t know that Goldberg also designed tables, chairs, and lamps, as well as a pretty amazing convertible bathroom (not pictured).
