Igor Marjanović and Katerina Rüedi Ray’s lecture and book explore Marina City’s architectural achievements, ingenious marketing campaign, and complex political partnerships. From financing to structural engineering, their study of this beloved Chicago icon, its architect, client and realtor, fills in missing chapters of modern architecture, urban politics, and labor history.

Igor Marjanovic is Assistant Professor of Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis. Katerina Rüedi Ray is Professor and Director of the School of Art at Bowling Green State University.
