Chicago Tribune Tower Competition Cup • semi final

In 1922 the Chicago Tribune hosted an international design competition for its new headquarters, and offered $100,000 in prize money for the most beautiful and distinctive office building in the world. The competition worked brilliantly for months as a publicity stunt, and the resulting entries still reveal a unique turning point in American architectural history. More than 260 entries were received. We picked 8 to see which one we like best in 2015!

Walter Gropius and Adolf Meyer

Adolf Loos
