In a city known for its architecture, 300 South Wacker Drive was a forgettable contribution. The building was a typical structure of the 1970s: steel, glass, and very boring. It was overshadowed (literally and figuratively) by the Sears Tower, which sits kitty-corner.
The map is simply done, with streets and the Chicago River represented in gray on a black surface. The only color is a bright red rectangle representing 300 Wacker’s location on the map. At night, the rectangle is the only part of the map that is lit up.

The map is best viewed from the opposite side of the Chicago River, along the Jackson Blvd Bridge or Van Buren St Bridge.
