900/910 LAKE SHORE DRIVE PARKING
In 1953 noted architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed two residential towers adjacent to his early modern icons at 860-880 Lake Shore Drive. Unlike the steel-framed earlier tower, 900/910 was designed and constructed utilizing a flat-slab concrete structural system.
In 1995 the condominium association retained Eifler and Associates to design and oversee the construction of a kiosk to provide a sheltered stair to the below-grade parking. Every effort was made to incorporate the new structure with the aesthetic of the older buildings, but in a manner that made the most use of contemporary, durable steel finishes, glass and curtain wall systems.
