Educational Research Building
1972, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (Chicago office, Walter Netsch). Northeast corner of Madison and Burlington streets

This is a calmer version of the Field Theory, still composed of squares and octagons. Angled bays project from the walls, and are attached to the surface of the walls by identical brick surfaces and by thin horizontal bands of glass. The third floor is dramatically suspended two floors above the entry, and it is supported by a row of tall concrete tubular columns.
