Google Doodle Celebrates Fazlur Rahman Khan

Have you visited Google’s homepage today? The doodle celebrates what would’ve been the 88th birthday of Fazlur Rahman Khan, the structural engineer and architect who was famous for pioneering tubular design in high-rise buildings. He also designed two of Chicago’s most iconic (and tallest) steel-framed buildings: Sears Tower (since renamed the Willis Tower) and the John Hancock Center.
