Bruce Graham dies at 84.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that legendary architect Bruce Graham of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill died Saturday at his Florida home. Graham shared authorship of the iconic Inland Steel Building with Walter Netsch, and went on to create, in partnership with engineer Fazlur Khan, two of Chicago's greatest skyscrapers, the uber-romantic Hancock Center, and the Sears - now Willis - Tower, for decades the tallest building in the world. You can read - or skim - the 333-page oral history that Graham gave to Betty J. Blum for the Art Institute of Chicago here.
