Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention
July 17, 2011–January 15, 2012
September 15, 10:30–8:00 and September 16, 10:30–5:00
Architect Bertrand Goldberg’s dramatic sculptural forms and innovative engineering have long been recognized as seminal contributions to the built environment of Chicago, most notably his groundbreaking design for Marina City (1959–1967). This exhibition, the first comprehensive retrospective of the architect’s work, positions Goldberg’s career within a broad historical framework that extends from his experimental origins at the Bauhaus in Germany and the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition to his visionary plans for the postwar American city.
