Monadnock Building

.
53 W. Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60604
CBD,   Chicago
Illinois,   United States

Designed by Burnham and Root. This building differs from others by Burnham and Root in the 1880s by using a masonry structure instead of steel frame. It also does away with facade ornamentation – instead the coloured brick, flaring out at top and bottom, provided all the articulation required by a building in what was once the downmarket end of town.
