Westin Peachtree Plaza, ATLANTA

Built: 1976
Height: 220m
Floors: 73

It was the tallest hotel building in the world when completed













I think it should deffinetly be one of the best from the 70s

1- John Hancock Center, Chicago.


2- Sears Tower, Chicago.


3- World Trade Center, New York.


4- Tour Montparnasse, Paris.




1970's were a fantastic decade for the big, black, massive buildings.

Best Australian building form the 1970's is the former BHP House

Architects: Yuncken Freeman Architects Pty Ltd
Designed in conjunction with engineers Irwin Johnson and Partners. The architects spent ten weeks at the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP in 1968 to seek assistance in developing the design.

Completed in 1972:




Timeless design:

Citibank is a good example of how a major engineering flaw could be salvaged. Chicago Hancock is a good example of how one single building can incorporate multiple land uses.

Citigroup Centre in NYC is my favorite 70's tower by a long shot.

1) WTC
2) Sears Tower
3) Transamerica Pyramid
