Clyde Baker is one of the world's preeminent geotechnical engineers, and a partner with STS. In the following conversation, Mr. Baker talks with the president of Phorio, Daniel Kieckhefer, about the science and future of geotechnical engineering.
Phorio sat down with James Goettsch, one of Chicago's hottest architects, who was reshaping Wacker Drive with three very large buildings, to discuss further trends. Mr. Goettsch's biggest projects were in China, and have made a huge stamp on many of the world's newest skylines.
To mark the completion of Skybridge, a unique residential tower on the western edge of Downtown Chicago, Phorio asked the building's architect Ralph Johnson of Perkins & Will to discuss its design and his ideas about architecture and the future of design.
