Fakten

  • Marking the northwest corner of Chicago's "Loop", the curved wall of green glass follows a bend in the Chicago River.
  • One of the most popular all-glass skyscrapers in the world, the design made architects Kohn Pedersen Fox famous.
  • In posters for the film "The Truman Show", the curved wall was portrayed in a photomontage as a giant television screen.
  • The building is exactly 301 feet wide, from one end of the curve to the other in a straight line.
  • The base is serrated on the south and east sides; this created a major engineering problem since the columns couldn't meet the edge of the building squarely.
  • This building was the first skyscraper designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, who have gone on to become one of the world's best known designers of tall buildings.
  • The building is flanked on both sides by office towers by the same architects: 225 West Wacker to the left, and 191 North Wacker to the right.
  • The architects were recognized with an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1984.
  • A nine-panel mural, the largest painting ever by artist Jim Dine, was commissioned in 1985 by the Nuveen Company for its headquarters on the 33rd floor.
  • The offices of the building's developer feature a large bronze sculpture by Richard Hunt called "Organic Construction".
