Speeches & Writings
As well as an architect and engineer, Bertrand Goldberg was also an intellectual. He spoke often in public and was active in the broader cultural and intellectual life of Chicago. His vision was a combination of intellectual reflection, technical knowledge and personal insights and cut across traditional understandings on urbanism and progressive social causes. His writings and lectures provide accessible insights to Goldberg’s design process, and can be found in his archive at the Art Institute of Chicago.

During Goldberg's life, only one major monograph was written; Michel Ragon’s Goldberg: Dans la ville, published in France in 1985. It has long been out of print and is made available here as a series of downloadable PDF files.
Two other books were released in 2011 in conjunction with exhibitions on his work, details of which will be posted here when they are available.
Other resources include both published and unpublished scholarly work on Bertrand Goldberg. Although Marina City was a critical success, Goldberg’s larger body of work has been highly regarded but largely not known to the broader public. His work was discussed in Klotz’ Conversations with Architects, and a full issue of A+U was dedicated to his work.
