Faits

  • This is a classic example of the Chicago School of Architecture, with an open grid design which expresses the steel frame of the skyscraper.
  • The hexagonal railing around the lobby atrium is decorated with a mosaic frieze by the Tiffany studio depicting events in the life of Jacques Marquette.
  • It was a named a National Historic Landmark in 1978.
  • Named for Jacques Marquette, a French Jesuit missionary and explorer who spent the winter of 1674-75 in the area that is now Chicago.
  • The lobby connects with the Edison Building to the west, allowing pedestrians to cross indoors from Dearborn to Clark Street.
  • Additional decoration includes bronze heads of native Americans, animals, and early explorers. The revolving door panels feature carvings of panther's heads.
  • In the 1930s the building was the downtown headquarters for over 30 railroad companies.
  • The original design has been marred by the additions of one extra floor, and 26 feet of additional frontage to the west in 1905.
  • A renovation in 2003 restored the cornice to the top of the building.
  • The façade is made of horizontally banded brown terra cotta with wave-like moldings.
