skidmoreowingsmerrill In Chicago, @nick_ulivieri captured the city’s tallest building as its upper stories recede into foggy skies. The 110-story Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), completed in 1974, marked a pivotal achievement in high-rise design and stands as a defining example of SOM's belief that a building’s structure should naturally inform its profile. The tower is composed of nine squared tubes, each rigid within itself without internal supports, that bundle together as a closed square and terminate at varying heights, creating a multi-tiered icon that defines the Chicago skyline.
