SOM in Chicago: 1936 – 2014


Since 1936, SOM has been a driving force in shaping the built environment across the world. This legacy is particularly evident in Chicago, where we have completed over 650 projects, 75 of which are located within the downtown core. Much like our global portfolio, these projects vary in size and scope, but they all embody our steadfast commitment to design excellence, innovation, and sustainability. This animation, created by SOM’s computational design team, tracks the gradual growth of the city from 1936 to 2014, highlighting SOM’s contributions along the way.
