Chicago never stops building or challenging the architectural world and the public. One of the boldest of the city's newer structures is the spectacular James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph Street, which has won both praise and criticism for architect Helmut Jahn. The massive red and blue, glass and granite structure houses 50 departments of state government and one of the most dazzling atriums found anywhere. Riding on the building’s glass elevator to the top floor is a must. An Illinois Artisans Shop and numerous restaurants are also found here.
