2008 Tribune Tower, Chicago, IL

Built 1925

In 1922 the Chicago Tribune held a international contest to design "the most beautiful office building in the world" The winning entry was derived from the design of the French cathedral of Rouen. At the base of the building is over 120 stones from famed sites and structures from all 50 states and also from foreign countries. They range from Mark Twain's "Injun Joe Cave" (Missouri), Parthenon (Greece), Bunker Hill (Massachusetts), and Taj Mahal (India)
