    Thoughts: locals in Dessau called the glass-walled Bauhaus building the “aquarium”, the Barcelona Pavilion reflecting pool, the pools at the Seagram Building plaza, 860-880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments hovering over Lake Michigan, folks who don't want to live in a Mies often say they don't want to live in "am aquarium", some of his early houses in Potsdam (Neu-Babelsberg) face the Havel river, the raised-above-ground Farnsworth House on the Fox River which occasionally floods the house and creates a kind of aquarium.
