1911-2011

Happy New Year (a bit early)! 1911 was very much a transitional time both stylistically and technically. Here are a handful of buildings that turn a century old in the coming year:

People’s Gas (D. H. Burnham & Co.)
Transportation (F. V. Prather)
City Hall (Holabird & Roche)
Hearst (James Green, an infamous “architectural aberration.”)
Dwight (Richard Schmidt)
Harris Trust (Shepley, Rutan, and Coolidge)
