    Architecture Puzzler #247

    The Chicago Tribune Tower (1922-1925) in many ways represents the ambivalence of the 1920s because its planning and structural frame were very sophisticated and modern for its time, while its exterior skin was Gothic. Who designed this building, and how was the firm selected?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #246

    Clay soils are sticky (cohesive) and can be excavated to a much steeper angle than sandy soils. This cohesion is partially due to the size and shape of its particles. Clay particles are small and flat shaped. Sand particles are larger and rounder. If a clay particle were the size and shape of a sunflower seed, would a medium-size sand particle be, proportionally, about the size of a golf ball? A basketball? Ten feet (3 meters) in diameter? Or 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter?
