This image is an isolated capture of the Aqua Building in the Loop area of Chicago. "Aqua" comes off more as a massive sculpture than an 87-story residential block in the crowded heart of the city.

Fantastic capture, Michael; on my last Chicago visit, this building was nearing completion. Looks better than I expected, seeing it complete! The underside balcony lighting is great.
