Studio Gang, in partnership with James Loewenberg of Loewenberg & Associates, created Aqua with striated limestone outcroppings that are a common topographic feature of the Great Lakes area. The Aqua Skyscraper is the largest project ever to date that was built by a firm headed up by a woman.
When they built Aqua, they were going for sustainability. They refined the terrace extensions to maximize solar shading and created rainwater collection systems and even energy efficient lighting. The building has a restaurant, a commissary, a health club, a sundeck with a grill, an indoor AND an outdoor pool and a sauna.
