hicago's recently completed
150 North Riverside building includes a dramatic lobby, nearly 100
ft. tall at its peak and surrounded by
a structural-glass fin-wall system
to visually connect the interior and
exterior. The laminated glass fins
completely enclose the lobby and
act as structural supports, eliminating the need for any steel or aluminum support columns. The result is
a transparent, open, and inviting
lobby space that allows significant
natural daylight. Photo: Nick Ulivieri.
