How This Tower Barely Touches the Ground


In one of the most informative and engaging features on GP’s 150 North Riverside, architectural educator Stewart Hicks uses his YouTube channel to profile the distinctive 54-story office building, including interviews with GP chairman and co-design director James Goettsch, FAIA; design principal Joachim Schuessler; and technical principal Erik Harris, AIA NCARB. Stewart walks through the design and engineering complexities of the core-supported tower, developed by Riverside Investment & Development Company and with significant additional credit due to structural engineer Magnusson Klemencic Associates.
