Just picked up a Helmut Jahn book published in 1986. It was only 5 bucks..woohoo!! What I found most interesting were the projects that were never built. All photos by Keith Palmer.
Humana Building 1982
The Humana Building design was later utilized for a project in Durban, South Africa.
Block 37 1983
Two early renderings
The final design included a 300,000 square foot shopping mall. Inspired in part by the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan. No comment on what eventually became of this space.

Helmut actually presented seven designs for the tower.
