Aon Center, Chicago . Model completed in 2009 . A microscale model of the Chicago tower. This model is approximately 1/650th scale, similar to my other skyscapers. Brickshelf Gallery 15 Photos on Brickshelf.com Digital Models Download a LEGO Digital Designer file of this model created by Rocco Buttliere Download an Excel file of the parts list The Aon Center is a structural tube, with major columns placed on the exterior perimeter of the tower for increased stiffness. This gives the tower its strong vertical architectural lines. The Aon Center has 83 floors and was originally called the Standard Oil Building, earning it the nickname "Big Stan". It was the tallest building in Chicago for a brief time before the completion of the Sears Tower. Despite its lower floor count, the Aon Center's roof is actually 9ft higher than the more famous 100 story John Hancock Center. Looking down on the roof top. For many years the Aon Center was the tallest building in the world without a major communication mast, architectural spire, or public observation deck. In the summer of 2009 a roughly 50ft tall communications antenna was installed on the roof. The sunken plaza along the Randolph Street entrance. The plaza waterfalls along Randolph Street. The covered entrances on the backside of the property. The tower model appears quite simple from the outside. However the inside requires a more complicated structure to hold it all together. Each face of the builing is actually comprised of two halves with the studs pointed away from the other. The two halves are held together by bar elements. The four faces are then connected at the corners using hinge bricks. A view showing the top most module removed from the tower. The modules are stacked and held together at their interfaces via eight technic pins. The model is comprised of four of these modules.
