#21) A high school friend, who became a minister, had to see Baha'i House of Worship, so we schlepped up there. That is one building I have known from the outside for decades, without ever getting a glimpse of the inside. It is quite spectacular.

#Cool Lake Shore Drive Apartments by Mies is another building I would like to experience inside.

#1) Aqua Tower by Jeanne Gang was supposedly inspired by "striated limestone outcroppings," but looks more like a square-ish tree trunk with mushrooms. Her undulating Vista Tower (#6) is more convincing.

#17) River City looks enticing. Too bad it is just a fraction of what Bertrand Goldberg envisioned.
