Chicago of “I, Robot”

The movie I, Robot, (very) loosely based on Isaac Asimov’s short stories, takes place in Chicago, in the year 2035. In the movie, the main new addition to the skyline is the US Robotics building. Here are a collection of photographs and charts exploring the architecture and skyline of Chicago from the movie. Attempts are made to place the new building in its setting (complete with a map of where the US Robotics building is located), as well as better understand the skyline design in general.
