About this artwork

Pensacola Place was one of two residential projects in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood designed by architect Stanley Tigerman in the late 1970s. He considered these buildings to be a critique of modernist high rises along the lakefront, which were accessible only to the wealthy. Tigerman’s plan for Pensacola Place includes subversive references to classical architecture, with a large pediment gracing the top of the tower and a reception design in the shape of a column capital. In addition, this project offered an interesting typological experiment in that it included duplex townhouses and a mixed-use structure serving the neighborhood.
