Facts

  • The reinforced concrete structure is cantilevered from a central core, with a concrete and copper façade and gold-tinted glass windows set in aluminum frames.
  • The design is based on a diamond module of 30° and 60° triangles, which is used as a pattern throughout the building and can even be seen scored on the floor.
  • Interior wall supports divide the tower into four separate quadrants. The southwest quadrant consists of eight two-story offices, and the other three are devoted to apartments.
  • 20-inch wide copper louvers shade the windows. These are positioned vertically in the SW quadrant, and horizontally in the other three.
  • Price Tower is one of only two completed skyscrapers designed entirely by Frank Lloyd Wright, along with the S.C. Johnson Research Tower in Racine, Wisconsin.
  • In 1983 this building became the 14th recipient of the American Institute of Architects' prestigious Twenty-Five Year Award.
