Best Answer

This is the Aon Center, formerly the Amoco Building, and originally the Standard Oil Building. It's actually now faced with granite, since the original marble cladding began coming away from the structure. The entire tower was reclad a few years back. According to a docent at the Chicago Architectural foundation, marble was well known not to withstand the extremes of Chicago temperatures. However, the wife of the company president thought that marble would be pretty, so marble it was. Regardless, the building is a fine example of the International School of architecture, has an incredible courtyard and fountain at the base, and some great public sculpture including John Kearney's Deer.
