Never built Helmut Jahn

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.

Bank of the Southwest Tower 1982

Helmut actually presented seven designs for the tower.

The final design

60 Wall Street 1983
New York

Three different designs were offered.
