Raising the bar: Zurich North American Headquarters

Like a giant arrow pointing toward downtown Chicago, the top bar of the Zurich North America Headquarters building cantilevers 60 feet to the east and rests atop two other bars. Not only is this stacked, three-bar design striking to look at, it also provides occupants with unique collaboration spaces, open views of the surrounding landscape, and programmatic flexibility that typical center-core buildings cannot offer.

The top bar is 500 feet long and spans 180 feet between the bottom two bars, which each rise five stories.
