This triple-glazed, panelized aluminium clad structure is taking its place among London's growing family of iconic architectural statements. And CH2M HILL - as structural engineers - has been tasked with ensuring the whole structural steel skeleton is designed and erected with the precision befitting such an important building. Aside from the 177m building's peculiar shape -- it bows outward at its upper echelons -- the structure will boast London's highest public park. The Sky Garden, as it has been dubbed, will allow Londoners to enjoy panoramic views of the capital.

If you ask most Chicagoans about their morning commute, restful and peaceful would not be words they would use to describe it. Unless their commute includes the 12-minute water taxi ride from Michigan Avenue to Union Station.
Chicago Water Taxi is rooted in the history of Wendella, a tour boat service that was founded in 1935 to provide architectural and area history tours of Chicago. In 1962, Wendella added a commuter service, known today as Chicago Water Taxi, which provides public transportation up and down the Chicago River. Some of the fleet's four boats make as many as 90 stops per day. In this video from Grainger's Everyday Heroes series, Andrew Sargis, chief of Operations for Chicago Water Taxi, says that for the commuters who use this service, it's like adding a mini vacation to the beginning and end of their day.
