The Squiggly Building: When Structures Function in Ways that Weren't Intended

This building at 3150 N. Lake Shore Drive is a residential high-rise. It also provides the landmark by which sailors and other boating people who don't have fancy GPS navigational systems find their way back to Belmont Harbor. If you haven't noticed it before you set sail, you'll certainly learn about it afterwards. Many a sailor has returned to Montrose Harbor (further north) by accident. (Note: This image slightly exaggerates its "squiggliness.")
