Prairie style on the River

The Reid Murdoch Building was designed by George C. Nimmons and completed in 1914. 

Its low height (7 stories), flat roof, and horizontal lines are hallmarks of the Prairie School style of architecture that originated in Chicago in the late 19th century.  One of the most famous architects from the Prairie School is Frank Lloyd Wright, who began his career in Chicago.

The building housed Chicago’s first Traffic Court from 1955 to 1998. It is currently home of Encyclopedia Britannica.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
