Description Aqua Tower is a multi-use high rise building located in the Lakeshore East neighborhood of downtown Chicago. Completed in 2010, this 82 story skyscraper is the first downtown building to incorporate hotel space, rental apartments and condominium residences all in one building. At a total area of 1.9 million square feet and a height of 859 feet, it is the worlds tallest building with a woman as the lead architect. Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects designed the building with cantilevered concrete slab balconies that roll and undulate across the facades to provide the tower with a natural, sculptural quality. These balconies also serve to enhance views of the surrounding city and optimize solar shading for the interior spaces. The ground level plinth structure is topped by one of Chicagos largest green roofs that includes amenities such as a park, pool, hot tub, fire pits, gazebos and a running track. The building has won many design awards and is LEED certified.

Paul Hasara, Chicago Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement Paul Hasara was raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Ohio State University. In his early architectural career Paul was trained to draw buildings by hand using a straight edge, ruler and compass. The drafting process helped Paul to develop an interest in abstract compositions of lines, curves and shapes. His architectural background is the inspiration for his photographic vision. Paul lives in Chicago, and is currently photographing the architecture of this great city. He also has an extensive catalog of classic car images that have been posted online. Paul will soon be posting a series of window reflection photographs created between 1998 and 2004.
