Modern Marvels: Sears Tower

The history of the engineering masterpiece originally designed as the Sears Corporation headquarters is explored in this installment of the History Channel's Modern Marvels series. At the time the Sears Tower was designed, it was one of the most ambitious construction projects ever conceived. Chicago was a city already renowned for its spectacular architecture, so the designers needed to ensure that their building would be easily distinguishable from the remarkable buildings that surrounded it. The result was a building that changed the face of urban architecture. Now viewers can finally find out exactly how the Sears Tower was erected, and how it is successfully maintained decades after it originally changed the face of the Chicago skyline.
