Watch a Time Lapse of Chicago’s Changing Skyline From SOM


From the John Hancock Center and McCormick Place to Trump International and the Willis Tower, Chicago has the architecture and engineering titan Skidmore, Owings & Merrill to thank for some of its most iconic buildings. SOM recently released a time lapse video of the 650-some construction projects that, over the decades, have transformed Chicago’s skyline. The video runs from 1936, when the Chicago-based firm got its start, up to 2014, and highlights many of the 75 SOM projects in the heart of the downtown. [Facebook, Curbed
