Bird Cage Apartments

Bird Cage Apartments is featured in the AIA Guide to Chicago, edited by Alice Sinkevitch. See link to book on the sidebar to this blog under "About the Architect."

#59) 6901 N. Ridge Avenue, Chicago, IL

An excerpt follows, "former Frank Lloyd Wright fellow Erickson curved this flagstone and curtain wall building to give every apartment a view of open space. The steel-rod staircase gave the apartment it's nickname, 'the birdcage' which originally rose above a fish pond whose reflection doubled its pizzazz."
