600 North Fairbanks: Co-Developer
Designed by world-renowned architect Helmut Jahn.
Merging advanced engineering and architectural concepts, Helmut Jahn applies his vision to elegant, modern structures like 600 North Fairbanks. Known worldwide for architecture that is open, light and transparent, Jahn has added to the landscapes of cities from Berlin to Brussels. Believing that perfection is achieved through eliminating the unnecessary, Jahn pushes the boundaries of architecture to create memorable and relevant buildings. He calls his method Archi-Neering: design that integrates the best architectural and engineering techniques to make buildings that are inviting, sustainable and supremely functional.
