333 Wacker Drive - Kohn, Pedersen & Fox


333 Wacker Drive, Chicago, the building that in 1983 inspired amost on its own an urban renewal around inner Chicago -- and it wasnt so bad for the career of Eugene Kohh, William Pedersen and Sheldon Fox either. Twenty-three years later the building has been so widely emulated that it might be difficult to see it with fresh eyes, but in its day this building was a word-beater in the way it integrated its site context, and wrapped it up so elegantly.

To some eyes, mine for instance, it still is.
