James R. Thompson center

The beauty and uniqueness of the James R. Thompson Center reflects on every shopping experience.


In addition to the Atrium, this astounding building houses more than
50 government agencies, boards and commissions. Designed by world
renowned architect Helmut Jahn, the award-winning marble, glass and
steel structure surrounds one of the largest enclosed spaces in the world.
The building's steel frame is topped by a cylindrical skylight soaring
75 feet above the roof level. The interior is an architectural marvel, with
a three hundred foot tall skylight and atrium. The rotunda, which is
one hundred sixty feet in diameter, is supported by sixteen floors of
balconied, open space.
