Description

Its striking neo-gothic design was the result of an international competition held in 1922 by Tribune co-editors Robert McCormick and Joseph Patterson, who asked contestants to "design the most beautiful and distinctive building in the world." The $100,000 booty went to two New York architects, John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. Besides the Chicago Tribune, the tower is also home to WGN (720 AM). Passers-by can witness live broadcasts from the sidewalk through a plate glass window.
