Wright, the Chicago Building by Holabird & Roche, and The Sears Tower by SOM (now renamed Willis Tower), which is the tallest building in the United States.
The name “The Loop” came more specifically to describe a small section of downtown Chicago, crossed by the elevated tram, also known as “the high”. The high has connections with underground lines and electric trains of Chicago Lan area. You would be able to make a broad view of the Loop neighborhood with our architect.
