East meets West in Chicago ~ 在芝加哥西方见面东方

A Neo-Gothic architectural masterpiece the Tribune Tower in Chicago is currently home to the Chicago Tribune Newspaper. Finished in 1925, designed by Howells & Hood Architects, the base of the tower incorporates design details from some of the world’s most famous landmarks. Robert ‘Colonel’ McCormick, the owner and publisher of the Chicago Tribune, asked reporters to bring back souvenirs from their trips before the Tribune Tower was completed. Now we can see details from the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and an ancient temple in Hunan.

在芝加哥有一个新哥特式的建筑杰作。目前是芝加哥论坛报的办公室,这楼大厦是论坛大厦。在1925年Howells和Hood建筑家设计了的大厦是完全完了。大厦的底部有世界上最著名的地方的部分。芝加哥论坛报完成了之前,罗伯特McCormick上校,芝加哥论坛报的主人和出版人,问记者把纪念品回来到芝加哥。现在我们能看到长城,故宫和湖南古代的庙宇的细节。
