Captured in this photo from the SOM archives, the model for the Inland Steel Building showcases the elegant, functional, and innovative design of this Chicago landmark. The project is composed of two adjoining volumes: a 19-story glass and stainless steel office building coupled with a slender 25-story service tower. By housing the elevators, service components and mechanical systems in the taller, vertical volume, the office tower floors could be completely opened up, allowing for unprecedented flexibility in the arrangement of workspaces. To further maximize the interior space, the office tower’s steel-clad support piers are positioned along its perimeter, where they visibly express the building’s structure and signal its identity.

This model reveals the structural steel framing and open, column-free interiors of the Inland Steel Building in Chicago, completed in 1958. Chiefly consisting of a 19-story office tower and a 25-story service tower, the building changed the way that tall buildings were constructed during the second half of the 20th century. Its influential design, which maximized the flexibility of how offices and work rooms could be arranged, also led to the transformation of American office culture.

Inland Steel

Three very different expressions in one space. Upward curves of the Chase Tower, curving corner of 55 W Monroe, and the clean lines of Inland Steel...
