The Chicago Architecture Biennial, entitled Make New History, aims to explore the respective intersections of history and modernity, art and architecture. Barozzi Veiga was invited to express their vision of the future skyscraper. The installation is a contemporary exploration of the 1922 Chicago Tribune Tower competition. The proposal for the Chicago Tribune Tower aspires to establish an intersection between different periods of time, techniques and visions of the specific place. It is a piece of architecture that is simultaneously specific and autonomous, capable of preserving and reviving the richness of Chicago’s tradition and history. Inspired by the terra cotta style, the project is a pure cuboid form, which is characterized by a static structural geometric grid that in its turn becomes a dynamic continuous ornament. From this intention rises a simple, pure building which proposes continuity and transformation of the tradition that has marked the identity of Chicago.
