ABSTRACT:The history and photographic submissions of the invitational competition and exhibition of the Late Entries of the Tribune Competition held in 1980.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Printed papers, color slides and black and white photographic prints.
ORIGINATION: Ryerson and Burnham Archives, The Art Institute of Chicago
ACQUISITION INFORMATION:This collection was a gift from Rhona Hoffman of the Young Hoffman Gallery in Chicago to the Ryerson and Burnham Library in 2002.

HISTORICAL NOTE:
In 1922, the editors of the Chicago Tribune, Colonel Robert R. McCormick and Captain Joseph M. Patterson, hosted a competition to redesign the Chicago Tribune Tower in hopes of creating an architectural representation of the radical philosophies held by the editors. The original competition not only offered the honor of the design of the building, but also a $50,000 prize. This 1922 competition was thought to represent the contemporaneous state of architecture and has always been regarded as a milestone of American architecture. The rules required participants to respect the structural module and height limitations established by the Tribune. The contestants, who came form all over the world, borrowed freely from the Greeks, Romans, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The winner of the 1922 competition was the American John Mead Howells.

The 1980 counterpart to the Tribune competition was not intended as a competition at all, but as an exhibition of architects from all over the world. Unlike the original competition, this was an invitation only endeavor, and over 100 architects were invited. The exhibition, "The Late Entries to the Chicago Tribune Competition," was an idea by architect Ben Weese further developed by architects Stanley Tigerman, Stuart E. Cohen and the owner of the Young Hoffman Gallery in Chicago, Rhona Hoffman. The exhibition opened on May 31, 1980. The developers wanted each competitor to represent a point of view or theoretical position, as well as represent a cross-section of progressive western thought. The outcome was that the styles, media, colors and intentions ranged greatly. Submissions to "Late Entries" did not limit themselves to functional buildings, but also to metaphorical and imaginary designs.
