Learning from the Chicago Tribune Tower competition 1922-“conscious Inspiration”

Posted in buildings with tags , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2011 by eliinbar

Chicago is one of the first cities where skyscrapers were built   (the first were built at the late 19th century).

In this post I will show skyscrapers built in Chicago after the Chicago Tribune competition  in 1922.

Here are four towers designed and built in the 20th of the last century, in Chicago, after the Competition.

Are their  source of inspiration, is the tower planned by Eliel Saarinen for the Chicago Tribune competition?

Did architects in Chicago, planned skyscrapers implementing the principles of the “Conscious inspiration”?
