Willis Tower in Chicago, the Western Hemisphere's tallest building, was conceived in 1969 when Sears Roebuck & Company was the largest retailer in the world, with about 350,000 employees. It remained the Sears Tower until 2009, long after the company had sold it and moved out; it was renamed after the Willis Group, a London-based insurance broker, leased part of the building and obtained naming rights.
Standing on Willis Tower's Skydeck, looking down on rooftops and traffic helicopters, and leftward toward the haze over the lake, and outward along the city's grid stretching toward the South Side, is a weird sensation. When you look out through a window at the metropolis laid out before you, the city becomes a map, allowing you to make some sense of its immensity.
Window vistas on the world are beautiful. They help make sense of the world, not disrupt it.
