The late Chicago architect Bertrand Goldberg was best known for his iconic mid-century Marina City complex and its 1980s cousin, River City, just south of the Harrison along the Chicago River.
Lesser known--but worthy of attention--is the above Goldberg-designed house located in the southern suburb of Blue Island.‚ (Yes, Blue Island.‚ So put those eyebrows down. The town has a fine collection of historic residential architecture, particularly from the 1920s. Many of the streets are indistinguishable from those found in neighboring Beverly.)
