Structural Innovation Takes Shape with HyperWorks at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

From skyscrapers such as the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center in Chicago to government buildings to airport terminals, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP (SOM) has made its mark as one of the leading architecture, urban design, engineering, sustainable design and interior architecture firms in the world. Founded in 1936, the company has completed more than 10,000 projects in more than 50 countries.

Known for its innovative buildings, the firm faces engineering challenges day in and day out. That’s because each project is unique.

What remains constant, however, is SOM’s reliance on sound structural principles – and the commitment to use technology to improve engineering processes and end products.
