225 West Wacker Drive

Chicago, IL

225 West Wacker Drive, just to the East, was designed by the same team of architects and opened in 1989. Postmodern features include the metal window boxes that echo the Merchandise Mart across the river, four rivets on each spandrel that echoes the riveted bridges below, and the optical illusion of flying buttresses from the Tribune Tower.
