Chicago: Modern Skyline By Steven Garcia, Joel Anderson, 2015
- Chicago: Modern Skyline
The Chicago skyline is home to four of the nation’s eight tallest buildings. Furthermore, the impressive Sears (Willis) Tower is the world’s fifth tallest skyscraper. The boom of the 1920s saw an unprecedented wave of skyscrapers shooting up across America, and Chicago was no different. Several of the massive buildings which own the skies in the Windy City were constructed during that time period. Inspired by the city’s impressive buildings, Anderson Designs handcrafted an art piece that features much of the city’s skyline. This American Travel rendition was styled after the poster art that was popular in the 1920s, an appropriate tribute to one of the city’s greatest growth periods.
