Piece description from the artist

Lake Point Tower is a 70-story high-rise residential building located in the area known as Streeterville. It’s situated on a promontory of the Lake Michigan lakefront, and is the only skyscraper downtown east of Lake Shore Drive. The architects were John Heinrich and George Schipporeit, working under the firm name of Schipporeit and Heinrich, protégés of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The building was completed in 1968 at a total height of 645 feet, and was the tallest apartment building in the world. It was one of the first all-electric high-rise residential buildings, and the first in a major city to have its own park-including a pool, duck pond, and waterfalls. On the top sits Cité, a fine dining restaurant serving up 360° views of Chicago, which serves French/American cuisine and is open to the public. Famous resident have included Sammy Sosa, Scottie Pippin, Alice Cooper, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Mickey Rooney & Joakim Noah.
