Fallingwater, Bear Run, Pennsylvania (1939) Frank Lloyd Wright Johnson Wax Research Tower in Racine, Wisconsin (1951) The design of the Research Tower consists of fourteen levels, seven of which are square plans with a circular mezzanine above. The central structural and circulation core accommodates the elevator and stairway channels as well as necessary ventilation and services. From the central core, the floor slabs are cantilevered out like branches of a tree. The entire outside surface is sheathed in glass tubes like the adjacent Administration Building to admit light without a view. The single reinforced concrete foundation for the central core is called the "tap root"

Chicago Landmark To Reduce Energy 80% <ul><li>CHICAGO – Sears Tower, that bronze-black monument that forms the 110-story peak of the skyline here and stands as the tallest office building in the Western Hemisphere, has a new name and will soon have another new feature: rooftop wind turbines. </li></ul><ul><li>The building’s owners say the turbines are part of a $350 million retrofit of the 1970s-era modernist building now named Willis Tower. The plan is to reduce electricity use by 80% over five years through upgrades in the glass exterior, internal lighting, heating, cooling and elevator systems. </li></ul><ul><li>With 4.5 million ft 2 (418, 000m 2 ) of office and retail space, 16,000 windows and 104 elevators, the project is bound to be one of the most substantial green renovations ever tried on one site, planners said. Willis Tower is significantly larger than the 102-story, 2.6million ft 2 (242, 000m 2 ) Empire State Building, which is also undergoing renovation to reduce energy consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>“ If we can take care of one building that size, it has a huge impact on society,” said Adrian Smith, an architect whose firm designed the renovation. “It is a village in and of itself.” </li></ul>Source from: ASHRAE JOURNAL August 2009
