S.C. Johnson Wax - Racine, WI

The Frank Lloyd Wright designed SC Johnson & Son Administration Building began its unique trek into history in 1936. The 15-story Research and Development Tower followed in 1946. Many consider the buildings architectural masterpieces, one of the crowning achievements of 20th century architecture. Constructed of “Cherokee-Red” smooth-faced brick, concrete, and Pyrex glass tubing, the designs were certainly innovative of the time. Wright is credited with designing a “center of creativity”, a place where great ideas would flourish and be shared.
