The Chicago Tribune wanted to celebrate its 75th anniversary by building the “most beautiful office building in the world.” To that end, the company held one of the most storied architectural competitions in American history. The winning design was a Gothic one belonging to John Mead Howells and Raymond M. Hood. The building is steel framed and sheathed in Indiana limestone.
