Building Where Famous People Live

Built by two students of Mies Van der Rohe, John Heinrich & George Schipporeit.

Our guide stated a great many wealthy & famous people lived here. At one point, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell lived here as well as Oprah Winfrey. The architect built it so that no one could spy on his/her neighbors. The angle of the windows prevents that from happening!
