Hood and Howells

Whereas Hood and Howells were inspired by Gothic sources in the Chicago Tribune Tower, here setbacks lack ornament and the building has a strong sense of upward movement and verticality. The building is a simple slab with white brick vertical piers alternating with red and black brick patterned spandrels. Thus the appearance of windows is minimized.
