Two students of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, George Schipporeit and John Heinrick, designed Lake Point Tower, in part inspired by one of their teacher’s conceptual projects. The skyscraper is one of the first to be constructed with curving glass walls and was at the time of its construction the world’s tallest apartment building. Meis Van der Rohe himself has no projects in the list of 150.
