|| Lake Point Tower
1:3000 scale miniature paper model, about 2.5 inches tall
When built in 1968, this 70-story tower across from Navy Pier was the tallest apartment building in the world at 645 feet. It was inspired by a rough sketch done in 1921 by Mies van der Rohe and completed by his students John Heinrich and George Schipporeit. The tower sits on a raised platform with a private park above and parking beneath.
