Modernism and The Masonic

The idea behind the project was to depict the construction techniques and details of the Masonic building, Chicago, built by David Burnham and associates.

The building dealt with large crowds, and the program included commercial stores, cinema halls and meeting rooms. This made it an important part of that society at that time, aside from it being one of the first skyscrapers to ever be built.

It showcases and highlights the key points of the architect’s architectural style, including the usage of vaults and multi-storey columns, as well as the preferred materials.
