Full Description

Lifelong Chicagoan Thomas Roszak is a rarity in the world of design: the architect-developer-contractor. With control over the entire process of making a building - aesthetics to investment, form to financials - Roszak produces such master strokes as the Linea Apartments, a 33-storey tower with a bold sculptural form, striking glass fa├žade, space-maximising apartments, and a suite of amenities that exceeds the norm. The success of his comprehensive vision is born out equally in architectural acclaim and apartment sales. Among the 16 projects included in Thomas Roszak: Purpose + Process are eight residential and commercial towers, including JeffJack Apartments and 145 South Wells Boutique Offices. In addition, eight specialty projects, including the Glass House, a study in transparency and enclosure, and Burnham Pavilion, a project with Zaha Hadid for the Chicago Centennial, are focused explorations of technology, sustainability, materials, and construction. Practical and personable, the text and building descriptions offer a wide-ranging, behind-the-scenes look into the architectural profession.
