Chicago is for Modern Architecture what Florence was for the Renaissance, and the same significance that the column had for ancient architecture can be attributed to the gridded frame. In Chicago, the grids which create the geography on the ground extrude vertically to organize the sky.

The Historic Core is an expression of traditional American Urban Development of grids and cubes. Angels Tower and Stepped Slab are assembled by stacking these blocks in the sky. Our hyphen architecture is a bridge, merging the grids and cubes of the Historic Core and the towers of Bunker Hill.
